Police chase

  • Chevrolet Tahoe PPV simulated car chase

    Every wonder what it's like to be in a car chase? I got the simulated chance at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex in Fort Worth, Texas. With officer Joe Stinger at the wheel of a Chevrolet Tahoe PPV, we chased a Ford Crown Victoria "rabbit" on a closed course. I sat in the front passenger seat (certainly better than the back seat of a cop car) and did the professional job of shooting the video shown above.

  • Woman leads police on 128 mph chase while drunk, topless

    Update: We now have video of the incident, including police dash cam footage of the arrest, courtesy of CNN. The new footage also includes new details: not only was the driver nearly naked, she was drunk. Good times. -------------- We are no more sure about what was going on in Erin Holdsworth's mind last night than the police are, but we think she may be on [to] something.

You see, she was arrested after being chased by police at speeds up to 128 mph--while wearing nothing but g-string panties, fishnet stockings, and high heels. Was she running...

  • Teen driving stolen dump truck

    Looking more like something out of the Grand Theft Auto series of videogames rather than real life, a 17-year old Ohio driver took police on a wild chase, smashing through local highways in a stolen dump truck.
