Thug Tries To Steal Bike But Cowboy Grabs A Rope And Does This (Wild West!)

Screen Shot 2016-06-16 at 12.18.13 PMSome two bit criminal thought he could escape justice after stealing a bike outside of a Walmart. Unfortunately for the thug, a cowboy named Robert Borba got on his horse chased the thief down with a lasso in hand.

Then this happened, from Fox News:

Borba lassoed the man around the legs and when he dropped, Borba dragged him to one end of the parking lot.

“I seen this fella trying to get up to speed on a bicycle,” Borba told the Tribune. “I wasn’t going to catch him on foot. I just don’t run very fast.”

Borba said the man tried to grab a tree and get away, but he kept the rope tight and the man in place.

“I use a rope every day, that’s how I make my living,” Borba said. “If it catches cattle pretty good, it catches a bandit pretty good.”

Eagle Point police Sgt. Darin May said officers arrived and found the lassoed man and bike on the ground in the parking lot.

“We’ve never had anyone lassoed and held until we got there,” May said. “That’s a first for me.”

Police arrested Victorino Arellano-Sanchez, whom they described as a transient from the Seattle area, on a theft charge.

We don’t exactly treat bike thieves the same way they used to treat horse thieves back in the wild west, but even so, after getting dragged across a Walmart parking lot by a cowboy maybe he learned something. The criminal needs to recognize that he doesn’t get to steal and redistribute wealth, only the government and Bernie Sanders are allowed to do that.
