Some Of These Little Known Details About Elvis Will Make You See The King Of Rock In A Whole New Light
And he impersonated police officers
The singer had a soft spot for police officers. In fact, if he weren’t making music, he most likely would’ve chosen it as his career path. The Graceland website mentions that he quickly made friends with officers whenever he traveled, and he had a habit of collecting badges from across the country. He also made donations to several Police Associations and departments.
But making friends with officers was just the tip of the iceberg. In the ’70s, he got a kick out of pretending to be a police officer and pulling people over for speeding. After showing off his collected badges, heâ€™d offer them his autograph and then drive off. That would be illegal today.
