“Welcome to the OK Corral.”

Every Day Danger Bay Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: Wyatt and Jimmy set-up their speed trap, “Now—we wait.”

Law enforcement is sometimes boring—especially when parked at the side of the road or on stake-outs. The time just drags by.

Minutes seem like hours—hours seem like days—there are only so many times one might ask “How ‘bout those Vikings?” or “The Twins really suck this season.”

Fortunately, our heroes only had to wait fifteen minutes before their first victim rounded the bend and bore-down the road at 75mph.

Wyatt & Jimmy’s first victim.

“Let’s git’em!”

Season 13—Adventure 8—Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 9—Scene 1… The big Mercury—powered by a 5.0 liter, 475hp engine—screamed away from the shoulder and very-quickly caught the five-year-old Ford Fusion.

It was occupied by a single individual, male, and by his body language, a dangerous individual.

“Jim!” Wyatt cautioned, “This is a felony-stop! Draw your weapon and keep it at your side.”

Wyatt walked up on the driver’s side to a point just behind the front door pillar, “Keep your hands on the steering wheel where I can see them.”

The driver did not comply—but started to reach towards his waist…

Wyatt shouted, “Freeze—or die right here—right now!”

The man’s shoulders slumped—he knew he stood no chance—no chance at all—of surviving, “Okay—OKAY! Don’t shoot!”

“With you left hand, reach out the window and open the door.”

The suspect did as he was told.

“Now get out very slowly and keep both hands in sight.”

The suspect did as he was told.

“Lie down on the ground, face down, legs spread, both arms above your head. Do it NOW!”

The suspect did as he was told.

“Alright, partner, pat him down and cuff him. And then help him stand up.”

After Jimmy had the suspect standing, Wyatt smiled, “My name is Wyatt Earp—yes, I am descended from THAT Wyatt Earp. We’re going to provide you with free lodging tonight as we determine who you are, and what you’ve done over and above speeding and resisting arrest.”

The suspect just knew he was in a world of hurt—but couldn’t keep himself quiet, “Effing Podunk Junction sheriff has no idea what kinda hurt will come from stoppin’ me—Wyatt Earp? HA!”

“Yup,” Wyatt replied, “Welcome to the OK Corral.”

Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 9—Scene 2… Everybody who was anybody gathered along the seawall to welcome their new namesake tour boat, MV Danger Bay, sail by on her way to the harbor. She was the last of the new tour boats to arrive.

Captain Molly Halloran, accompanied by her three fellow captains waved from the bridge, and on a signal from Molly, the pilot sounded the Danger Bay’s multi-toned foghorns.

The salute was answered by the village’s emergency alert horns atop the water tower.
