German cop hops on kid’s bike to pursue, nab suspect

BERLIN (AP) — When German police got their car stuck chasing a suspect on a moped, one cop stepped up and commandeered a nearby child’s bicycle.

Shortly thereafter the policeman successfully chased down and arrested the 27-year-old suspect.

Police say the suspect, who had evaded a traffic stop Tuesday in the southern German town of Bamberg, was found to be carrying drugs and driving under the influence.

Police spokeswoman Silke Gahn said Wednesday the officer, after the arrest, gratefully returned the 22-inch bike he had borrowed.
