A group of rollerbladers nabbed on the 405 Freeway finally released a video of their exploits more than two months after Carmageddon II.

Four rollerbladers (or inline skaters, whatever) took a short skate down the 405 Freeway and were nabbed just as they took an off-ramp. The video just released this week explains how they got caught: a CHP patrol car on the freeway caught a glimpse of the reflective seam on one of the skaters outfits (h/t LA Weekly). (Rookie move!) The CHP officer radioed it in, and another CHP car stopped the skaters just as they got off the exit and cited them.

A couple of newlyweds taking a romantic stroll down the empty 405 that evening were also cited. Now that we'd really love to see pictures of, even if it is almost three months late!
