I'm married to a cop
Lorna Derby's last name got her out of a ticket in Arlington Heights, Ill.
"I blew past a cop when I ran a red light," she says. When she handed over her driver’s license, Derby mentioned that she's married to a local cop.
"I hoped he'd let the family member of one of his own go."
Name dropping helped, and she escaped with a warning.
"Then I had to call my brother and explain that I was now his wife, not his sister!"
