How To Sweet Talk Cops
Episode 8. Ever wondered what to say to the police when they book you? Well here’s what not to do. Actually these stories all end relatively well. But still, I wouldn’t live by their advice. Keith tries giving someone else’s name. Gabby and Dylan try sweet-talking and cracking jokes (cops love that.) And Mike tries to buy himself some time. Then later, he just finds the cocaine party where they're “cool with it.” If you’ve got other bright ideas, we’d love to hear them. Otherwise, we recommend staying out of trouble and enjoying this episode of It’s All Bad.
