Took them several minutes as the dispatcher I reached via 911 was not with the dept lighting me up. But they did verify it was indeed a LEO. I asked them to stay on the line to explain to the LEO that I wasn't trying to run or such silliness. I pulled over and cop started yelling about me not stopping sooner. I handed him the phone and told him it was dispatch. He calmed down PDQ after that. It all worked out and I didn't even get a ticket, as the reason I was lit up was because my truck matched the description of a truck suspected of a store robbery.
Try that now days and you would probably be shot before you could hit the 9 key.
