Leonard Olsen Jr. sounds like he’s a king among men after a recent interaction with police in Florida.

Olsen was charged with misdemeanor reckless driving after allegedly putting his car on cruise control so that he could ride out of the sunroof. However, that’s not nearly the coolest part of the situation. What he told the police about his wife makes him a damn legend. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Fox 13 wrote the following about Olsen’s recent reckless driving charge in Polk County, Florida:

FHP Trooper Ricky Binet wrote in his report he told Olsen he received reports of a man fitting Olsen’s description sitting in the sunroof while traveling on I-4.

Olsen allegedly replied, “I don’t know about that.”

“Mr. Olsen stated that he wanted to turn himself in to an ‘official’ and asked if he could turn himself in to me. When asked ‘why do you want to do that?’ Mr. Olsen stated ‘My wife treats me like a servant and she’s the mistress and I’m tired of his [expletive],'” the report states, adding, “Mr. Olsen also stated, ‘lock me up, I’d rather go to jail [than] go back home.’

There’s no way you can put this Florida man in jail right? You just can’t. His wife sounds like he left him no choice. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

If you’re given the chance to drive normally or risk going to jail because of your wife and you choose the latter, then you should have a medal pinned on your chest instead of being put in handcuffs.

As a nation, we sometimes have to come together to realize when something is much bigger than the rest of us. That’s where we find ourselves with Olsen. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

The judge should do the right thing, pat this man on the back and send him on his way. If we’re willing to lock up guys like Leonard Olsen Jr., then we’re lost as a nation.

It’s really that simple.
