The 'rent-a-cop' is actually none other than BMX race legend, Robbie Miranda, dressed in a sheriff's outfit. Even still, would you hit the mega ramp on some strange cop bike?

 "I need backup. Send me Stu Thomsen"
  • + 5
 That name sounds familiar, I had a Huffy Stu Thomsen BMX back in the day.

 @pcloadletter: Seriously? You don't know the Godfather of BMX?
Stu Thomsen invented radness!
...and was quick as a mink.
  • + 9
 That's rad because Stu Tomsen is an actual Sheriff Deputy! AHAHAHAH

 I would have called Harry Leary for back up.

 Best line in the whole thing. Stomping Stu has been in law enforcement down in So Cal for several years and still makes the occasional BMX National in the 51-55 Cruiser class. No doubt he would have ripped it too!

 "Look buddy, this bike catches bad guys and it can jump stuff too"

 I worked at a bike shop with Robbie for a year when he raced for Cyclecraft. He won the nationals and turned pro. We went to interbike in Philly where he introduced me to his new sponsor Bill Danishek(DK) He could rip the biggest dirt jumps with anyone. He could do Huge turndown 360's over massive jumps and win a pro main. He went on to become a DC bike messenger during the worst winter the region saw in 10 years. He was instrumental in getting a BMX track built in his home town. A humble ripper that took x games gold in BMX downhill......oh and he jumped a semi...the long way.

 Very cool. I'm blown away at your memory. Thank you all for the cool comments guys. I had a blast filming this with long time friend Barry Nobles. Yeah maybe it was staged, but I hope you enjoyed it for 2 minutes of your day.

 @robbie59: Remember going to Philly with Curtis and Mark Meza (who was yelling FREE OJ>>>> out the window) Glad to see you still ripping Robbie!- Denny

 I feel like I'm missing an important part of the backstory here... or maybe these guys just have way too much time on their hands.
  • + 21
 you did, it's not a cop.
  • + 57
 Yes, Robbie Miranda is an ex-BMX pro who is now a Sheriff Deputy.
  • + 26
 @atrokz: Robbie Miranda is a cop, but also a former AA bmx pro racer.
  • + 18
 @mecabeat: @nyhc00: whaaat. I didn't know he became one, I knew him from the BMX days. that's rad and makes total sense now.

 @atrokz: Right, but what prompted the making of this video in the first place? Who thought 'Lets have this ex-bmx-er turned cop ride a jump while we kinda halfheartedly make fun of him for being a cop'?
  • + 7
 No. Its just Nitro circus. At their shows they have couches with wheels amd fireworks

 Run what you brung

 very entertaining! I couldn't believe how incredibly well he hit it and landed. Regardless of experience or anything that is a very non-jumpy setup.
  • + 18
 [totally not fake news]
  • + 4
 Still, good news.
  • + 5
 Not completely fake as he is indeed a cop... and an ex pro bmx rider.
  • + 16
 See! 29-ers can jump Smile

 maybe Robbie Miranda should be consulted by whoever comes up with designs for cop bikes. i would like to see cops on bikes that are more agile/maneuverable, that don't look like outdated mtn bikes
  • + 7
 I remember a rider called Mike Miranda, perhaps i'm showing my age lol;
  • + 5
 Someone get that guy a donut. You've earned it
  • + 2
 Back around 99"-01"ish, Miranda was sponsored by DK. There was a very famous spread of him jumping the DK rig & trailer, something like 70ft', ramp to ramp on his 20".........the guy was freaking awesome.
  • + 3
 Fuck yeah! And he over jumped the trailer and almost missed hitting the landing ramp!!!

 He should of done it with a pocket full of shells.
