A Portland traffic cop caught a driver going more than 20 miles over the speed limit, but never issued the ticket due to a heartwarming duck rescue.

Mark James was in pursuit of the speeder when he noticed a few ducks trying to cross the busy road.  Instead of blowing by the foul, he turned on his lights and helped his web foot friends get to safety.

He tried to pursue the car afterward, but the speeder was long gone.  James then went back and arrested the ducks for interfering with a police chase . . . or maybe I made that part up.
