On-Duty Officer Does Motorcycle Stunts [Video]
The policeman didn't do any wheelies or stopies on his back, but his way of riding, combined with the pleasure of standing up with arms stretched while switching lanes caught the attention of a motorist who, by accident, was trailing the police officer.
The motorist caught the officer on tape and shot a video of him showing off. Of course, news of Cantrell's exploits reached Lawrence Police Deputy Chief Gary Woodruff who, what do you know, is quite proud of his officer.
"This is one of our outstanding officers. He's a very sharp, solid officer and, obviously, he's very exuberant in his duties," Woodruff told wthr.com.
Even so, some action will be taken against the officer, even if it's not clear yet what kind of action. Woodruff points to possible counseling to tamper his needs to show off. After all, the deputy chief adds, the police department advises officers to behave at all times as if they 'were on videotape.” Such stunts are, says Woodruff, to be performed only at police shows and such, but not in traffic.
"I believe this behavior can be corrected with counseling and we documented that counseling was performed and his supervisors will closely monitor to make sure this doesn't happen again," said Woodruff.
