    Nope not what you think as my son in the story is in his early 30s. I have 2 sons that are police officers and am proud of them both. This story just happens to be about Billy. His mom sent me this article from their local paper as Bill would not want me to worry on the other hand she probably hopes I read it and have a heart attact.

    Traffic stop nabs three on drug, felony complaints; search of driver reveals hidden drug stash
    July 13, 2005

    In the early hours of July 7, Mannford Police Officer William Metcalfe stopped a vehicle in Lake Country after it failed to stop at a stop sign. In just a short period, Metcalfe would discover a small arsenal of weapons all within the reach of the driver and two passengers, and he would take Travis Dale Young, Robyn Joe Pryor and Thomas Lee Mays into custody on several drug and felony complaints.

    At 5 a.m., a blue Chevrolet truck ran the stop sign at the west end of Lake Country Drive. Upon stopping the vehicle, Metcalfe asked the driver for his identification, which the driver said he did not have. The two passengers also said they did not have identification. The three identified themselves as minors. Young identified himself under a false name. Metcalfe took the three into custody.

    Pryor consented to a search of her person, and Metcalfe found nine white pills labeled "Pfizer 431" and two green and white pills labeled "Dista Prozac 20 mg" in her front shirt pocket. Pryor said she did not have a prescription for the pills, and Metcalfe arrested her for possession of prescription drugs without a prescription.

    Metcalfe then looked in the truck and saw a .25-caliber semi-automatic pistol on the seat of the truck. He then found two matching .40-caliber pistols under the driver's and passenger's seats.

    When he looked behind the seat, Metcalfe said he was stunned. He found a loaded AK90 rifle with a "banana clip" with 30 rounds of ammunition attached, a Colt AR15 rifle with a magazine attached, an SKS rifle with a bayonet and two 12 gauge pump shotguns.

    Metcalfe said he was "shocked" when he saw two shotguns and three assault rifles behind the seat of the truck.

    "All I could say as I pulled back the seat was, 'Oh, my God,'" he said.

    Metcalfe also found an open bottle of Smirnoff vodka on the floorboard, along with a black wallet with Pryor's Jasper, Texas, identification card. She later admitted Pryor was her actual name, police said.

    In the back of the truck, Metcalfe found eight collector-coin sets in a duffel bag. There was also a three-legged female pit bull, which was taken to the Mannford pound.

    While Metcalfe searched the vehicle, the driver and other male passenger identified themselves by their actual names.

    At 5:45 a.m., Metcalfe and Sgt. Mark Payne, who arrived to assist Metcalfe, arrested and transported the three to the Mannford jail.

    It was during the book-in that Metcalfe found a bag of a green, leafy substance hidden in Young's buttocks. The substance, weighing 2.2 grams, later tested positive for marijuana, police said.

    Chief James Hillis praised Metcalfe for his work, saying the officer usually works the night shift by himself because of a shortage of officers.

    "This was a heroic action," Hillis said. "(Metcalfe) took three armed people into custody without incident."

    Town Administrator Mike Nunneley had similar praise for Metcalfe, saying he was "very impressed with Officer Metcalfe's police work. The citizens of Lake Country and Mannford should appreciate his efforts to keep Mannford safe."

    "Officer Metcalfe (arrested the three armed individuals) and simply said he was just doing his job," Nunneley said.

    During questioning, the three said they were living with Young's stepfather in Arkansas. According to the affidavit against Young, his stepfather was "kicking Pryor out of his home because she had warrants in Oklahoma."

    Mays said he, Young and Pryor decided to steal the truck and guns to drive to Oklahoma and sell the firearms.

    According to records obtained through the Oklahoma State Courts Network and Oklahoma District Court Records, Pryor had an outstanding warrant in Payne County for obtaining merchandise by bogus check.

    During an interview with Hillis, Pryor stated she knew the guns and coins were stolen.

    On July 8, Metcalfe sent an affidavit to the Creek County District Attorney's office requesting Young be charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property, possession of marijuana, bringing drugs into a penal institution, failure to affix a tax stamp, possession of a firearm in commission of a felony, false impersonation to a police officer to avoid prosecution, transporting an open container of liquor, failure to stop at a stop sign, failure to comply with compulsory insurance law and driving without being licensed

    According to police documents, similar affidavits were issued against Pryor and Mays.

    Out-frigging-standing. Send him an Attaboy for me will you. I'm glad he made it through that ok. That stop could have gone very badly, Your son Bill worked it like a champ.

    Big city cops get all the glory, and not saying their job isn't tough, because it is. But small town cops deal with the same things even knowing their nearest back up might be an hour or more away. Heck, when I worked for a small town PD, we were highly discouraged from stopping cars with multiple occupants if we could avoid it (which sometimes, you just can't), unless there was more than one of us on duty.

    Again, Out-frigging-standing....

        You would be right with that assumption. I asked him where his nearest backup was and he said "Well there's a couple game wardens that live down by the lake I could have called. I still get nervous thinking about that reply. I was wanting to hear something like Oh no problem a couple staties were racing to back me up.

          Wow, that IS a kid to be proud of! Keeping your cool in a situation like that is what will keep him going home every night!

          Props to Billy for a job well done!

          As a side note... What is kind of funny to me is, they obviously made no attempt to hide the .25 sitting on the seat, but stashed 2 grams of pot in his butt!
          In CA, 2 grams MAY earn you a ticket. A pistol on the seat will surely get you a new pair of bracelets and a ride in a cruiser...
