n. The deft act of physically dropping your cell phone in the middle of a call, whilst driving your car, to avoid getting ticketed for not using a hands- free device while driving. There is no time to give notice to the person on the other end of the line, so they may wonder what all the noise was about as your phone tumbles to the floor mat or between the seats.
Not a required technique in all states... yet.
(Person on the OEL): "Yo, what was all that thumping around? You were in the middle of saying something and then it sounded like you fell down."
(Driver): "I had to do a cop drop. The po- po just flew up on my ass. He's gone. Now where were we?"
