Police Chief Longo Runs Down Suspect

Coeur d'Alene Police Chief Wayne Longo's passion for running paid off Tuesday when he helped officer Hank Dunham chase down a grand theft suspect in a foot race that began at the Tire Rama on Appleway. The suspect Daniel W. Bisher, 35, from Spokane, was taken into custody by Longo and Dunham after fleeing on foot from Tire Rama, then south on Government Way, through a vacant field, and then to Carl Jr’s. He was captured at the Hastings parking lot entrance. Twice, Bisher stopped and appeared to reach into the front of his jacket (where he had a Glock pistol) while ignoring Chief Longo’s commands, yelling that “he was not going to jail.” Bisher ran again when Longo pulled his own gun. Bisher took off running again toward Appleway where Dunham and Longo apprehended him. More here. Info provided to HucksOnline by CPD spokeswoman Christie Wood.

Question: Wouldn't it be safe to say that our police chief is faster than almost anyone else's?
