Seen on the Street: An Officer and a SkateboarderApril 4th, 2009 by josh farley
A coworker of mine was walking in downtown Bremerton Friday when he saw a skateboarder heading down the middle of the street.
A Bremerton cop came up from behind the skateboard and told the young man riding the board to stop. The skateboarder hastily kicked up his board, my coworker said, and, well, didn’t give the officer the warmest of receptions.
The cop was straight and to the point with the young man about his unlawful ride. “Do you want to say ‘thank you very much officer,’ or do you want a citation,” the officer asked.
Changing his apparent tune, the young man gave a polite wave and went on his way, my coworker said.
