Yes, you read that right: yet another would-be criminal has been nabbed by the long arm of the law... riding a Segway. Well, we assume that the cop in question must have had long arms, 'cause the Segway is only capable of moving at 12.5 miles per hour, well under what the average reasonably fit man can hit in stride. Of course, no word is mentioned on the fitness of said man, or said cop, but let's all just be glad that the criminal did not get away. Actually, one did get away, but let's not dwell on negatives.
This time, the run-down took place in Chicago after Thaddeus Martyka, the Segway-mounted officer, heard what sounded like a gunshot. Sure enough, when he wheeled his way over in that general direction, he saw the criminals and nabbed one.
