Just FYI, there isn't a chance in hell that I would have waited for the ticket. The cop can follow me to the clinic, and bring his supervisor with him.

SAN ANTONIO -- A San Marcos police officer, who allegedly told two Texas State University students en route to an emergency veterinary clinic to "chill out, it's just a dog" has been reprimanded.
The couple was pulled over for speeding while headed to the clinic with their sick teacup poodle.
The San Antonio Express-News reports Officer Paul Stephens, who allegedly told Krystal Hernandez and her boyfriend Michael Gonzalez, "You can buy another one" was made to watch the tape with his supervisor and counseled on how to improve his performance.
Missy, the dog, died on Aug. 5 while the couple waited 20 minutes for a speeding ticket from the officer.
