What is the meaning of the word "pop" in:
Detective: "You Popped in '92 for ag assault, (o.s.) '93 criminal conspiracy, '94 possession (on) with intent"
What is the meaning of "popped" here? what is it capitalized?
Thanks a lot.
Not a teacher
If you gave a wider context it would make things a lot easier, like about the "issues". Haven't you got an OCR to scan at least a paragraph of the book you are reading?
Are you sure the detective didn't say "You got popped in '92 for ag assault"? To get "popped" is slang in AmE for being arrested. It sounds like the detective is reciting a list of previous crimes to a perpetrator: he was arrested in 1992 for aggravated assault, in 1993 for criminal conspiracy, and in 1994 with possession of illegal narcotics with the intent to sell them. "Popped" wouldn't usually be capitalized, though.

Look at some possible uses:
"messing things up" - confusing things
"messing around" - going about senselessly or causing disturbance
"messing with me" - fooling me/with me
"messing in other people's affairs" - interfering
