(Newser) – It may sound like a scene from a slapstick comedy, but it really happened in Germany: Police were chasing a suspect on a moped when he drove down a narrow road, foiling them, as their car couldn't make it through. Undeterred, a police officer commandeered a child's bike and rode it to continue the pursuit, the AP reports.
