GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- A police officer is the talk of the town in Green Bay for his choice of transportation.

Joel Zwicky is known as the "Skateboard Cop" throughout town. He chose to ditch the squad car for a specially-designed skateboard. It has bigger wheels and red and blue LED lights.

Officer Zwicky says he can still do his regular patrol on the skateboard. He pulled over a motorcycle once during a traffic stop.

"I think I'm the only one in the world who actually patrols with a skateboard," Zwicky says. "I only tried it once on a trail when I caught a motorcycle there where he wasn't allowed. That was a jaw dropping experience for both of us."

While his red and blue lights grab attention, the Skateboard Cop says he has no plans for a siren... at least for now.
