Yesterday, a former SAE at the University of Kentucky got in a high-speed car chase that resulted in him running over spikes in LA, getting a DUI, and taunting the officers in the process. The video is hilarious. I thought you folks over at TFM would enjoy.
We did enjoy it. Thank you. Here’s the video so you all can enjoy it, too:
I do have to challenge some of your language here, though. According to CBS Los Angeles, this wasn’t a high-speed chase at all. It was a meticulous, unthreatening, one-eyed drunk-squint scenic route, but most of all, it was a low-speed chase.
The chase began before 1:30 p.m. in Malibu after a patrol unit reported a suspect driving recklessly along the Pacific Coast Highway.
Officials pursued the suspect, who was driving between 40 and 50 mph, along the westbound PCH until he came to a stop just before 2 p.m. in Point Mugu after driving over a spike strip.
40 to 50 mph on a wide open highway means this Wildcat was at least trying to be safe. I’m not defending his behavior at all, because drunk driving is a terrible offense, but in his clearly drunken state of mind, he was just cruising the California coastline, taking in the sound of the Pacific waves bouncing off rocks, and posing zero threat to those around him.
The move where he pulls over in the middle of the highway, gets out, squares up to the weapon-bearing cops, then breaks out that Black Swan routine he’s been saving in his hip pocket is definitely something I didn’t see coming. Nailed it! Surprisingly, it was ineffective, as moments later a crowd-controlling beanbag bounces off his chest screaming at about 900 mph, but he remains completely unfazed.
Check out his power stance. Who would step up to a “come at me” pose like this? The cops have families at home to think about.
