Car thief caught by police on Segway

Naturally when a car thief steals a Mercedes car you would expect if the alarm was raised early that there would be a police car chasing after them, but in Long Beach, the police have a weapon against these car thieves, the two wheeled battery powered Segway personal transporter, which has a top speed of just over 12 mph!


The Mercedes Benz car was stolen by three juveniles and was observed by Officer Jose Miguez as it left the car park of a Burger King restaurant, he then went into hot pursuit mode, following the car as it drove down the road, however the police was able to still keep them in sight as it accelerated away, but they decided that the best thing to do would be to leap out of the car and make their escape, the car left the road and ended up hitting a utility pole, which was probably a stroke of luck for the people walking on the sidewalk.


However Officer Miguez kept up his pursuit of the driver finally catching up with him a few minutes later, it turned out the driver was only thirteen years old, he later identified his partners in crime, who were also young teenagers, they have all been charged with juvenile delinquency.

Could this be a classic example of the hare and tortoise?
