Even Cops and Robbers are Longboarding

Police Chase

You must have seen a bunch of videos where the bad guy is running away from the police in a stolen car.

Almost always, the scene is filmed from a helicopter throughout the chase. Looks kinda a like movie scene, right?

But I’m confident that you have never seen a video where the bad guy already knew that he couldn’t get away with a car, so he jumped out of the vehicle with a longboard in his hand.

My first thought was that this is probably a very special board for him, so if he goes, it goes with him, but that wasn’t the case.

When he got to the sidewalk, the bad guy put his longboard down and rode it, thinking that it will help him get away from the cops. Bad thing (or good), was that he was not a very skilled boarder and got arrested a few minutes later.

If you are just getting started to riding like he was, take a look at the 10 best longboards for beginners list.

But why am I talking so much? Take a look for yourself.

On the other hand, the police aren’t too far off from getting on board the coolest way to getting around.

Green 0 police officer, Joel Zwicky, is considered to be the first law enforcement officer in Wisconsin and probably the US to patrol on a longboard.

His board even has a police cherry light on it!

Zwicky has be patroling the streets on his longboard from 2012. It looks awesome and it is a great way for officers to be closer to the community.

Cops have difficult jobs, but as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody they should do it with style. He even changed his regular work shoes to Vans! Take a look for yourself. After all, police equipment in the near future might all look like this.
