THORNTON, Colo. — Police in Thornton have a new fan after stopping to help a tour bus.

Apparently, country music star Clint Black had a good run of bad luck while in Colorado.

Police said an officer spotted a tour bus with its hazard lights on and were stunned when the “Desperado” singer popped out.

Officials didn’t say what was wrong with the bus, but it sounds like it wasn’t a bad goodbye for Black.

Instead of leaving the officers with nothing but the taillights, he signed a copy of his new album and tweeted a message to the department.

Hopefully next time Black’s in Colorado, he’ll stay a while on purpose.
