4-Speed spent 12 hours in jail waiting for a judge to see him. Those hours did more to open his eyes than Hard Time's words did.

They all testified on behalf of 4-Speed because of the maturity he showed when he owned up to his mistake. 4-Speed was fined 400 bits for Underage Possession of Alcohol.

A/N: This story was a great success, I want to thank all you bronies and pegasisters for reading it, but COPS: Equestria is unfortunately complete. Originally, I was going to continue with the supporting cast. Luna, Celestia, Cherilee, Big Macintosh, but I think I will save that sequel for later. Right now I am going to work on other stories and when I return to pony fics, I will expand on this story. So for those of you that didn't like the Canterlot Chapter, for obvious reasons, sorry but you know what's coming…
