“Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do when they come for you?”

The theme song for “Cops,” the original law enforcement reality show, asks a question criminals should be prepared to answer when they attempt to evade, resist, curse or attack those hired to protect and serve. More than 25 years since the show first aired March 11, 1989, millions of viewers still tune in weekly to watch routine police patrols in 140 cities and towns from Los Angeles to Little Rock and places in between. Catch new episodes of one of the longest-running TV shows in history on SpikeTV, but until then, here are 15 of the craziest, wildest and funniest arrests from the first 25 seasons.
