    Leprechaun warns drivers to slow down

    ORLANDO, Fla. - There was no pot of gold behind the dancing roadside leprechaun, only speeding tickets. Dozens of drivers in the Orlando area found out the hard way Thursday after passing an Orange County sheriff's deputy dressed as a leprechaun and warning drivers to slow down.

    A laser detector clocked cars above his sign reading "Watch your speed or it will cost you your pot of gold," and several officers on motorcycles chased those who didn't heed the advice.

    Deputy Richard Lockman said police were giving out about one ticket every minute since 8 a.m., the Orlando Sentinel reported for Friday editions. He was dressed in a green leprechaun outfit with a hat, tight white knickers and a fake red beard.

    "We do this sort of thing a lot on holidays," sheriff's spokesman Jim Solomons said.

    Lockman did the same thing with a Christmas elf outfit in December. Speeders complained that being stopped by a deputy in costume was entrapment.

    "I think that's just ridiculous," Lockman said. "The elf didn't force anybody to speed."

    Re: Leprechaun warns drivers to slow down

    That's an embarassment to leprechauns everywhere.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.
