~ Ponyville Police Headquarters; Year 10 (present day) ~
L.G. tumbled through the front doors of the station, a police pony closely behind her with his front hoof extended forward. It had been a less than successful day for the problem solver, whose latest exploits had brought her to Ponyville on the flank of Chuck Ponzy, a con artist she'd managed to chase out of Appleoosa a few months ago.
"You didn't have to push," she snapped, shaking her head to move a stray bit of red mane out of her face. "I know how doors work, Slim."
"Please stop calling me that, miss," the officer said with great exasperation. "My name is--"
"Yeah, yeah, I heard you," the grey mare rose to her hooves. "Lighten up, Slim. A little smile can go a long way, you know?"
The officer smacked his forehead. "Miss, please just have a seat while we figure out what to do with you."
"Am I being arrested?" L.G. asked. "Because if I am, I'd like to know why."
"You assaulted a unicorn in the middle of town in broad daylight!" the officer shouted. "Five witnesses saw you kick him into a fruit stand before chasing him down the street for five minutes!"
L.G. laughed. "Five minutes? Really? I must be losing my touch because nobody's ever kept me off of their tail for that long!"
"This is no laughing matter, ma'am." The officer walked to the front desk, taking a pen in his mouth before signing a form.
"Hey, last time I checked it wasn't illegal to kick a criminal!" L.G. replied. "I've been chasing him around for months now. You think I want to be in this town? It's way too close to Canterlot for my tastes. If anything you should have arrested him! It's not like I did anything wrong beyond being a concerned citizen."
"And throwing a plate at my head?" the officer asked. "I'm lucky you missed."
"I didn't 'miss'. I wasn't even trying to hit you. How else was I supposed to keep you off my back?"
"Well you clearly didn't do a very good job at it."
L.G. squinted. "You know, it's not as funny when you do it." This was going to be a long day.
((Officer is an NPC that I used to get L.G. in the station. He won't be that important as this progresses, assuming I don't bone this up too badly. If you're feeling ambitious you can make up a name for him.))
