Until miles later when he ran out of gas and was arrested. Womp womp.

This could have turned out real real bad with innocent casualties.

Glad they caught him.

Unless the car is stolen, the second the chopper is out you're done. You're literally just digging yourself deeper at that point.

If it's stolen at night time and you can get out of view of the chopper and there are no cops behind you, a very unlikely trifecta, then maybe you can dump and run/hide somewhere. Even then with the amount of cameras everywhere you'll likely end up arrested within a couple of days anyway

this video made me realize that i assume that every high speed police chase happens in California.

first i was like, where's Winnie? oh well, lots of small towns in the California desert i've never heard about. then Houston was mentioned and i got really confused.

I thought the Hellcat had flares on it. This looks like a regular Challenger. ???

Man, we have a high speed chase monthly in DFW, sometimes weekly. LA probably has more, but we're doing our best to catchup.

Hell, this morning my four year old said he'd make the police chase him once he can drive. Not sure where that came from, but it might just be the air in DFW.

Yeah he out ran the helicopter but not before they got a picture of the license plate.

Like I said, unless it's stolen and the car is not linked to you, you're screwed.

They don't drive Doge cars in Cali. That should have given it away.

This was a while ago and I think the car even had lowjack on it.

Bike life guys defeat the helicopter here all the time but they do it by splitting up.

This is the infamous I-10 used to distribute drugs throughout the south. While all those cops were busy with this dude, it provided the opportunity for a lot of weight to be moved. Nice distraction.

if you can't get away and out of site in 5 minutes don't even try.


This guy did it right. ditched the helicopter by going into a parking garage where car B was waiting for him.

average top speed of a helicopter is about 160mph. they aren't going to push it that far.
