Went to a Freeway and a Skate Park Broke Out
A fellow of unreported age ran out of gas Tuesday morning on the southbound 405 in Costa Mesa.
This soon produced the unsettling sight, at least in the view of many morning commuters: a guy on a skateboard, zooming alongside them on the shoulder, headed up an offramp.
The spectacle produced distressed calls to the California Highway Patrol, whose Denise Quesada tells the Associated Press that a couple of her fellow officers later greeted the skateboarder at his car.
Instead of a ticket, he was given enough gasoline to be on his way.
To the closest skateboard park, no doubt.
