Calif. officer on Segway patrol makes car-theft bust
By William Murphy,
LONG BEACH, Calif. — Long Beach police have made their first Segway-assisted arrest, nabbing three juvenile car thieves after an officer gave chase aboard his two-wheeled, battery-powered Segway Personal Transporter.
"We went down one full block, we went up two of the short blocks and then another full block back," Miguez, 34, recalled yesterday, balancing on the Segway outside police headquarters.
