You guys have a million things going on inside the car (radio, MDTs, cell phones, etc) and while I'm sure all of us wish he'd been able to pay a bit more attention and avoid it completely, it's at least a little different/more understandable than when some 19 year old is texting "OMG THAT PARTY ROKD" when they wreck one. But I'm willing to bet he'll take some serious ribbing from his fellow officers for a bit about the high-wire act! *** Miami police spokesperson Detective Willie Moreno said Brutus, a 4 year veteran, was driving when he was momentarily distracted, as he reached for a fallen pen. His patrol car left the road and headed for a utility pole, but before it struck the pole, the car rode up along a guide wire. His vehicle rode on to the tension cord of this pole, said Moreno. The officer was not hurt, and after the door was opened from the outside, the officer was able to walk away while laughing. *** *As always, I'm not a LEO of any type, and appreciate the opportunity to take part in some ways as a guest in this forum.
