This story from the Scottish Legal News has nothing to do with anything… except that reading it made me happy 🙂
And finally… roped in
A would-be bike thief was stopped in his tracks after he was caught – by a cowboy.
Robert Borba was in a Walmart car park in Eagle Point, Orgeon when he heard a woman shout that a thief had taken her bike.
Mr Borba, 28, explained: “[She said] ‘Stop him! Stop him! He stole my bike! He stole my bike!’ And I kind of look around and all of a sudden this guy goes whizzing by me on a bicycle.”
But Mr Borba gave chase on his horse and rounded up the suspect with his lasso. “A couple swings and then I threw it at him, just like I would a steer,” he said. “He’s like, ‘What are you doing, man? You got a badge?’ And I’m like, ‘No, I ain’t got a badge,’” Mr Borba added.
Police then turned up and dealt with the suspect. Mr Borba said: “If it was my wife or my little girl, I would hope somebody would help her if I wasn’t around.”
Police said the cowboy asked for his rope back, tipped his hat and rode off into the sunset.
