Cell phone laws on the road are annoying as all get out (it’s already illegal to be a bad driver, people), so when I heard that a comedian in Los Angeles tried to pull a fast one on the cops by baking iPhone cookies, I laughed.
Randy Liedtke baked some pretty realistic-looking iPhone cookies, and then trolled the streets for cops while pretending to talk into one or texting on it. He live-tweeted it, which just goes to show how mutli-talented he is, being able to drive, fake text, and live tweet all at once.
First he baked the cookies. They're pretty awesome.
Made iPhone Cookies to trick cops into pulling me over, I'll just take a bite and ask if cookies are against the law. pic.twitter.com/MBGYAH1hiH— Randy Liedtke (@randyliedtke) December 9, 2013
Then he went went looking for touble.

Took a bite out of the cookie. He was so confused and angry. Told me to hold tight, he is back in his car now.— Randy Liedtke (@randyliedtke) December 11, 2013
Says I have a warrant for unpaid parking tickets? Making me go with him. Letting me text gf but Im tweeting this. pic.twitter.com/vv89MUqg0Q— Randy Liedtke (@randyliedtke) December 11, 2013
Whoops. Liedtke's last update on the whole escapade was one of remorse. I guess the moral of the story is -- if you're going to try to play a trick on the police, make sure you don't have any outstanding warrants.
Wasn't worth it. I'm an idiot... No more iPhone Cookies pic.twitter.com/MbQZq0UA9O— Randy Liedtke (@randyliedtke) December 12, 2013
That's one sad looking dude.
Do you love or hate cell phone driving laws? There doesn't seem to be anyone in the middle on this issue, but feel free to leave a comment and prove me wrong.
