duh. If you were in the back of a police car, you'd be there for being a suspicious person.

Or you went crazy at a meeting after losing your lunch.

Well, I actually was in the back of a police car but not for anything malicious, you tell me your story and I will tell you mine!

Oh, by the way, there are generally no such thing as door handles in the back of a patrol car!
