Did they think that the officers did it on purpose?
Still, more folly at the expense of the taxpayers.

It sounded like thay were playing chicken and one zigged when he should have zagged.
Im sure your right Gus tax payers will be paying for the repairs not the officers that were playing.

You are right Gus. Some brilliant journalism here related to the conclusion it was an accident.

Next year these two clowns can perform with the Shriners, if they can memorize the routine and drive the go cart.

I was told by one of the local law enforcement officers that the motorcycle mishap was actually a pre-arranged "Keystone Cop" routine. Is there any truth to this?

I can report the following occured near the intersection of Center Street and Sudderth at approximately 1028 AM.
Two officers were egaged in conversation by the side of the road. one was consuming what appeared to be a triple chai tea from nearby Starbucks. Officer #1 took the now empty Starbucks cup and began walking to a garbage can near the NE corner. A surly midget dressed in what appeared to be blue man group, stopped and engaged the officer and then offered to throw his cup in the garbage.
Two minutes later both officers were perched upon their bikes awaiting what appeared to be their introduction in to the motorcycle folleys. Officer #2 turned to yell something at the midget when the midget through the empty Starbucks cup in his way, hitting the helmet of officer #1. Officer #1 began to turn back towards the angry midget to confront him when officer #2 sinaled him. Officer #1 cut in too close and too early so that when the officers made their circle 8 formation in the middle of the street, officer #1 clipped the side of officer #2 bike. Officer #2 appeared to be injured and a crowd pushed him and his bike to a secure location near candle power. EMTs arrived on the scene and an ambulance followed. A gurney was transported from Center street to Candle Power but the embarassed officer did not wish to join the parade flat on his back in a gurney. Officer #1 had only slight injuries. He left his bike in front of the what used o be the toy store and took off after the midget. Officer #2 waited out the end of the parade and then the ambulance pulled up nearest him so he could climb in the ambulance for transport to LCMC.
An African American cowboy seemed to be videotapin the whole incident. A group of Ruidoso Street Toughs walked up to him and attempted to coherce him in to turning over the tape or recording device. The conversation was inadubible, but the black cowboy left abruptly with the video camera in tact. Five minutes later the street toughs were giving a description of the black cowboy to the State Police.

As someone married to man of particular short stature, I find your use of the word midget to be ignorant and offensive.

Midgets hate amusement parks.
Verne Troyer (Mini-Me) went to Hawaii on vacation and was very upset because there were no accomdations for 'little people'. So he bought an apartment complex and had it remodelled strictly for little folks. He then decided that he wouldn't charge anyone to stay there.
He called it "Stay Free Mini Pads".

I hear COPS wants to film live in Ruidoso during Thanksgiving weekend. Or maybe it was just a Hubbard.
