Denver police ticket 12-year-old for getting hit by car

Posted By on Fri, Dec 31, 2010 at 4:44 PM


As a kid, you know how it is: One minute you're sledding, thinking about what's for lunch — possibly the homework you have due the next week — and the next, you're thoughtlessly and deliberately careening out of control into the path of oncoming drivers, who coincidentally enough — because it's snowing like a motherfucker — are careening out of control, too.

So what do Denver police responders do? Why, they ticket the little bastard. After all, it was his malicious out-of-control sledding that caused a car to hit him, not to mention a man to run out and try and jack the car up and off the child, not to mention cause an ambulance to rush the child to the hospital.

Here's Denver's KDVR:

Even kids couldn't stop their sleds. Neighbors say a black car hit a 12-year-old boy who skidded into the street and ended up under the car.

Candace Villalovas' husband tried to help.

"He ran down, grabbed his jack from the garage, went outside to jack the car to take the pressure off Michael," she says.

The injured boy was taken by ambulance to the hospital. Police say he's expected to be okay.

Police ticketed him for being a pedestrian in the roadway.

We've e-mailed the DPD for comment and confirmation that they're keeping the snow-bound world of Colorado safe from marauding youngsters. We'll update if they brave a return.
