This American policeman is getting down with the kids. Sort of.
It's the eternal war - like Autobots and Decepticons, policemen and skateboarders have been battling it out since the dawn of time.
But now one policeman in Wisconsin is crossing the divide and extending an olive branch to skaters after centuries of busts, bollockings and arrests.
Yep, this cop has taken to riding a skateboard himself. Well actually it's a longboard, but who's splitting hairs? He's even stuck flashing lights on it and everything!
Like Autobots and Decepticons, policemen and skateboarders have been battling it out since the dawn of time.
