Rocky Mount police officers responded to a larceny at Wal-Mart Friday afternoon just before 4:00p.m.. They say Proctor fled the scene on a moped and hit two cars before ditching his moped in the parking lot of Home Depot and ran. Officers say they caught Proctor and took him to the Nash County jail.

    Is it really a "hit and run" if a moped is used? Should be a "bump and putter." I heard the policemen had to walk really fast to catch him. Go easy on this fella. Times have been hard since his heyday as an extra in Roadhouse. Thanks, I'll be here all week.

    Finally glad this low-life piece of scum has been caught. He's made a career of breaking and entering and theft. You got what was coming to you Bobby.

    THAT IS WHY THESE MOPEDS SHOULD NOT BE LEGAL WITHOUT INSURANCE. THE CARS HE DAMAGED WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO COLLECT FROM HIM.

    Fleeing the scene on a moped? Seriously? That should have been video taped and put on the TV show about "Hot Pursuits".

    Police say that in the high speed pursuit the moped reached speeds of up to 29 mph!
