A week ago, a county sheriff’s deputy broke his ankle while on duty. This happened when two deputies crashed into each other. Now normally, this wouldn’t be a big deal. Except for the fact that this officer was on a Segway. And the reason he crashed was because he ran into another officer on a Segway.
The sheriff’s office spokeswoman assured the distraught public that “both deputies have been trained to operate a Segway. We don’t have information to lead us to believe that they were operating the Segways irresponsibly.”
Well good. At least now we know they weren’t fooling around. At least know we know they’re not irresponsible. Just stupid. And that is hilarious.
Folks, I do believe that this makes it onto the list of completely moronic things done by police while on duty. Right next to that guy who rear-ended another cop at a red light.
I fully support our law enforcement, for the record. I just think that some people should not be trusted with the task of protecting the general public. This guy, with the broken ankle, is one of them.
At least they’re entertaining though. 🙂
