** If border guards count, then ''TheTamuli'' has a great example in the form of some Cynesgan guards who were deliberately trying to stall Sparhawk. This being a work starring Sparhawk, [[MurderIsTheBestSolution constructive Elenishism]] ends up taking care of the problem.
** In ''The Elenium'', there's two cases when officers try to hassle a troop of [[BadassArmy Church Knights]] escorting their [[GeneralBadass Preceptors]]. Intimidation (and a perfectly-legal field demotion) wins the first time, but the second time Sparhawk lets Faran work out some aggression by trampling the idiot.

* ''Literature/JoePickett'': In ''Blood Trail'', Joe is driving to meet an FBI informer from inside an AnimalWrongsGroup in a park in an isolated small town. He is stopped by the small town cop for speeding (the speed limit had been changed the month before and Joe did not know). It turns out Joe had once arrested the cop's father for hunting without a licence and the op still bears a grudge and goes out of his way to be as hindering and obnoxious as possible to Joe. Joe eventually knocks the cop out and drags him along to the meet. However, by the time they get to the park, [[DoomedAppointment the informant is dead]].

* while ''Series/TheWire'' largely focuses on detectives trying to make a case against major players in the drug trade, we occasionally see interactions between patrol cops and the corner kids who mostly view them as an annoyance or occupational hazard (barring the occasional [[PoliceBrutality violent bastard]]).

This is the beat cop who wears a uniform, patrols the neighborhood, controls traffic at cross-sections, and watches for infractions to the road code. Heroes who break the law whether unwittingly or out of childish mischief will likely end up on his wrong side, and be given a fine or taken to the local police precinct. Neither a RabidCop, a CowboyCop, nor an OldFashionedCopper, the MeddlesomePatrolman is still liable to be as annoying as the ObstructiveBureaucrat.
