These Cops Have No Problem With Perpetuating the Donut Stereotype

By Mustafa Gatollari

It's almost always comforting to see that police officers are capable of having a sense of humor, like these cops did when they responded to an incident involving a Krispy Kreme truck.

Cops are usually such intimidating figures, it's kind of hard not to straighten up and get all sorts of nervous whenever you see those flashing blue and red lights popping up in your rear-view mirror.

Cracking jokes with a police officer is usually the last thing on your mind when you're rifling through your glove box praying that you put your updated insurance cards in there. Surely, you wouldn't offer one a donut if you happened to have some sitting on your passenger's seat. Would it be a hilarious thing to do? Absolutely. Would it probably result in you getting a ticket? I'd wager money that it would.

That is, unless, you got one of these police officers from the Lexington, Kentucky police department who responded to a Krispy Kreme truck emergency. From the looks of it, one of the donut chain's trucks somehow caught fire and needed to be towed off the road.

Before anyone could make the joke about cops flying their flags at half-mast out of respect for the delicious treats, Lexington PD went ahead and made it themselves.
