Ducks Interrupt Pursuit

Portland, OR – On duty Police Traffic Officer Mark James got more than what he typically expects on a pursuit.

James’ dash-cam video released by the the Portland Police Bureau, started out with what looked like to be a routine stop.  However, it was anything but routine.  With the up-beat music starting, James starts his pursuit of a car going 52 MPH in a 35 MPH zone.  The car quickly leaves the screen not to be seen again.  Still in his pursuit, James notices a hen and her ducklings walking the lane divider.  Without questioning himself he stops his pursuit and guides the ducks to a safe ditch.

This isn’t the fist entertaining video release by the Portland Police Bureau.  Shortly after the “Harlem Shake” craze, they posted this YouTube hit as a PSA (Public Service Announcement).
