Police segway training goes hilariously wrong (VIDEO)

REXBURG, Idaho — Several officers from the Rexburg Police Department learned riding a Segway isn’t as easy as it looks, East Idaho News reports.

The police department shared the humorous video with EastIdahoNews.com.

At the beginning of the video, Police Chief Shane Turman tries to control the two-wheeled motorized personal vehicle. After being jerked around, he slams into a chair and hops off.

As other police officers laugh, Turman says, “Okay. There’s gonna have to be a little training.”

Captain Randy Lewis then decides to give the Segway a try.

He gets on, grasping a side table, and says, “I got her.”

Within seconds, Lewis crashes into a table and tumbles to the ground. His fellow officers roar in laughter.

Fortunately Lewis tells us he’s doing fine and, since this video was shot, he and Turman have properly learned how to ride a Segway.

    What is up? As an authorized Segway dealer and trainer I find this video totally unacceptable! You have cops totally out of control on a Segway and laughing about it. Segways are not toys, respect them or stay off! These cops have lost respect of their community.

    And these guys are who are being asked to protect and serve us? Complete morons. I run a Segway tour company and have never had a customer look like that big of a tool on a segway.
