(Newser) – He'll be back...but next time he'll make sure he's walking his bicycle. Deutsche Welle reports a German police officer was shocked to discover the man he stopped for riding a bicycle through the main railway station in Munich was none other than the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. On Friday, the officer noticed two people on bicycles "weaving their way among the many travelers more in the manner of a slalom than a speed race." That's verboten, so the officer stopped one of the men, who said he was "Arnold Schwarzenegger's bodyguard." The officer thought he was joking until the other cyclist stopped.

Schwarzenegger apologized to the officer for breaking the rules and offered to take a picture with him as a "small compensation." He told the officer he "couldn't walk well," which was why he was riding the bicycle. "After brief small talk with the federal police officer, the Terminator left the main station through the north entrance," the AP quotes a statement from police as saying. Schwarzenegger was in town for Munich's famed Oktoberfest.
