"Our officers are pretty fast"? Is the Alhambra police Dept. aware of the fact that a tortoise is pretty slow?

It's the doughnuts.

And the fact that, if the tortoise was more than 100 metres away, the officers would have to go back for their car keys - if they could remember where they left them.

I guess the poor guy was caught because he had to carry his house around with him.

Don't we all dream of running somewhere? And not getting caught?

I wonder if the policemen asked the tortoise how fast it was going when it was pulled over?

Geebus crackers! Only in LA. Good thing the flat foots in blue have cheetah like speed. Keep trying Clark and you'll get free, perseverance pays off eventually!
