A Kalamazoo, MI woman who all but guaranteed herself a traffic ticket when she ran a red light in front of a cop, managed to get out of it at the very last minute—simply by coming very close to death.
By the time the officer approached her window, she could barely breath.
The officer pulled her out of the car and began performing the Heimlich maneuver. He was eventually able to dislodge both the 'dog and its bun, declaring "Holy shit," as the traumatized woman began hysterically crying.
Nearly dying: sometimes it's a win/win.
