Talking You can run but you can't hide

I TRANSLATED AS BEST I COULD




Two local policemen jumped in to the water to stop a kitesurfer
• The individual endangered the lives of the two policemen
the individual was identified as Alonso Martinez Rio, aged 39 a citizen of Madrid, was arrested yesterday by the Local Police on duty at beaches accused of endangering the lives of bathers, disobedience and resisting authority.
The events occurred about five p.m. on the beach of Navel, close to La Pena. The Local Police had been called by phone by a group of bathers, complaining the presence of a kiteboarder to close to the people bathing, conducting maneuvers near the edge and threatening to swimmers, among them many children.
A couple of policemen on duty at beaches travelled to the area, checking the veracity of the complaint. From the shore, made signs for the athlete to come to land but he ignored them. At the insistence of the policemen finally he approached them but keeping a safe distance, to ask them what they wanted. The policemen requested him to disembark to identify him self because he was kiting in a prohibited are. He disobeyed and began to maneuver to get away, at which time one of the policemen jumped in to the water to stop him, clinging to the board. Faced with this, the kiteboarder continued maneuvering flight, dragging the officer who did not drop the board.
In view of this, the other police jumped into the water to support his partner, but this time the athlete is caught, dropped and placed him under arrest(hand cufted), not without some difficulty since they were in an area with nearly one meter of water.
The arrest was witnessed by numerous bathers, many of whom came to congratulate the two members of the police force.
The detainee, who was taken to the Civil Guard barracks, must meet, besides the crime with which he is charged for any damage caused in the material police (radio, mobile phones and ammunition) that were unsuitable to be submerged in water. The estimated value of that exceeds 1,500 Euros.

Wow, that is quite a story Enrique. I was thinking of sliding into another forum, Lessons From The Hardside or something. On further reflection, we need to see and take these sort of acts head. People like this are far from the majority in our sport, they are the highly visible minority. Try to get them to calm down, if not, bring whatever reasonable pressure you can bear on them. No one has the right to screw with bystanders, the authorities or our sport in this fashion. Where did you find this on the Internet btw?

Thanks for the link. On second thought, considering the unusual activity on the site currently, maybe it would be better to place it here for a while. Hope that's ok Latino.
