Hagen (dpa / lnw) - In order to stop a fleeing cyclist, a police officer in Hagen quickly grabbed a passerby's mountain bike and started the chase. The officials said on Tuesday that he was able to catch up with the 47-year-old cyclist and stop him shortly afterwards.
On Sunday, the police checked whether cyclists were properly pushing their bikes over a bridge. The 47-year-old had shown himself unreasonable and protested. After being warned, the man pushed his bike a few meters across the bridge, but then got back on in front of the officers and rode away.
According to the police, an officer ran after the 47-year-old and asked him to stop. The man looked around, but then drove even faster. In the meantime, another policeman borrowed the mountain bike and stopped the fugitive. The 47-year-old was reported. In addition to the traffic violation, he has to answer for disregarding police instructions.
