The official police incident report states: "[The unit] was requested to
cover the road junction on the Auchterarder to Braco Road as the President
of the USA, George Bush, was cycling through." The report goes on: "[At]
about 1800 hours the President approached the junction at speed on the
bicycle. The road was damp at the time. As the President passed the junction
at speed he raised his left arm from the handlebars to wave to the police
officers present while shouting 'thanks, you guys, for coming'.
"As he did this he lost control of the cycle, falling to the ground,
causing both himself and his bicycle to strike [the officer] on the lower legs.
[The officer] fell to the ground, striking his head. The President continued
along the ground for approximately five metres, causing himself a number of
abrasions. The officers... then assisted both injured parties."
