From the SFGate:

Man on Mini-Motorcycle Leads Cops on Chase
“A 42-year-old Lake Crystal man led sheriff’s deputies on a goose chase. His getaway vehicle: a 5-horsepower mini-motorcycle.

A call came in reporting that Douglas Lee Menne had wiped out at a downtown intersection. Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Wersal responded, suspecting it was a case of drunk driving. . .

. . .Wersal pursued Menne to a parking lot where he paused briefly, re-started the bike and zipped out the other side of the lot. The chase continued as Menne put-putted down a nearby street at about 25 mph. . .

. . .Wersal then fired his Taser out his squad car window. One dart hit Menne, but fell out. The effort hindered Menne enough for Wersal to get out of his car and push Menne off the bike. It took the help of another deputy to make the arrest, according to the report.”

OK, first, you don’t “chase” a 5hp mini moto. You “follow” a pocket bike. Enough said, this story is bizarre enough.
