Waiting to hear the full story. Who in their right mind will pull over for a blue light at 3:00 in the morning. If it were me being pulled off, I would drive to a police station which is what this driver may have been trying to do. I understand Douglasdale police station is not too far from where this incident occurred. Don't judge before you know the facts.
