EAGLE POINT, Ore. -- A man on a horse chased down and lassoed a suspected thief at the Eagle Point Walmart, according to witnesses.
Police say that a woman was yelling about her bike being stolen and a nearby man unloaded a horse from a trailer, lassoed the man and pulled him back toward the store. They say that the man grabbed onto a tree and wouldn't let go.
Eagle Point Police arrived on scene and arrested the man, identified as 22-year-old Victorino Arellano-Sanchez.

I saw that on a McCloud episode in the 70s.
Ride ‘em cowboy! Yeehawww!!! What’s that hombre’s immigration status, pardner? ;)
How the West was won. :)
That is an uplifting story & photo. Boosted my spirits. Thank you for posting them.
I love it! The bike thief will never live this down in the Hood Community. Roped like a crippled steer! How humiliating,
and he’s surrounded by all these amused women who have likely already filmed the entire event to play it back for their families.
One more reason why we need that wall.
I saw that on a McCloud episode in the 70s.>>. fun show and walker did it.
Thanks for a great story!
Sanchez eh? Must be Amish?/s
Viva La Raza?/S
A rope and a tree. In the old days, that would have been the end of the story. But from the picture, the tree seems to be a few years short of the job.
Another DREAMer dreaming of an America where he could steal bicycles without getting lassoed by cowboys.
oh yeehaw, this is funny just the same
we don’t need no steenkin lassos lol
Funny...he just happened to have his horse and rope handy. Something the horseman probably dreamed of doing since he was young.
Now he just needs branded with a hot iron. A nice Walmart smiley face right on his cheek!
:: Funny...he just happened to have his horse and rope handy ::
Funny...As well as a readily SADDLED horse in his trailer.
He must be one fast cow-hand to unload, saddle and trace down the perp who was riding away on a bicycle.
That right there.......shows a picture is worth a thousand words.
LOL. Love the guy hanging onto the tree...all lassoed-up.
Funny how the scenery has changed but COWBOY JUSTICE is always in style.
And the hero is ridind a Buckskin horse, too. That’s the cherry on top.
