Call The National Guard! 12 Patrol Cars Chase Slow-Moving Moped…

Twelve – that’s how many police cruisers we counted pursuing a man riding a slow-moving moped in Norton Shores, Michigan!

A good chunk of Norton Shores Police department participated in the low-speed chase that never went over 35mph (56km/h) for about eight miles (13 km) before the man, who was later identified as Richard Shear, 28, jumped off the bike and took off on foot.

Surprisingly, he didn’t get far, as the local law enforcement managed to arrest Shear without the need of…calling in for air support.

Police had responded to a call after Shear purportedly threatened his 62-year old mother and girlfriend with a sledgehammer and a knife and tried to set the house on fire, according to the police report obtained by MLive.

Another report from Fox 17 said that Shear, a former Marine who served for eight years in Iraq, has been struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and “abusive alcohol”.

The 28-year-old man was charged on “two counts of felonious assault, attempted arson of an occupied dwelling, fleeing and eluding in a motor vehicle, and resisting and opposing a police officer”.
