Sometimes, the jokes write themselves.

Even if they didn't, I can thank the fine folks who follow the Eau Claire Police Department on Facebook.

Here's the story behind what cops are calling the "Most Wisconsin Complaint Ever," a term used to describe a uniquely Wisconsin situation that's both amusing and a bit bizarre:

At 9:46 PM officers were sent to check on a report from a driver of someone chasing them down and throwing cheese at their car. Not gouda. It's un-brie-lievable that someone would do that. Throwing cheese is nacho best look Eau Claire.

The Eau Claire Police Department's Facebook page is a treasure trove of puns, surpassing the humor quotient of the average police department. It's a delight to see their unique take on law enforcement.
