At least he got his money's worth.

And he got to see all around beautiful Houston.

I want to say it's one of the 80's satire movies, but does anyone else remember the scene of the car chase where they stop for gas, and the crooks and the cops are both filling up their cars staring at each other, racing to fill up first so they can get back to the chase...

Just has that surreal sort of Naked Gun / Top Secret / Airplane style humor in my mind.

"Refueling during a high-speed chase" doesn't make any sense whatsoever. By the time a single car refuels, they're out of the chase. The whole point of a police network is so that each department can pick up the chase when it enters their area.

TFA seems like a sensationalized version of "one cruiser was at a quarter-tank when it turned around to head home, so it stopped to fill up." Shocking.

Yes, blast at parties etc.

> Police said they found drugs in the stolen vehicle.

The chase when on for hours across multiple counties and over 100 miles... and the driver didn't ditch the contraband???

This is like 50/50 of either "driver is Florida man on tour" or "cops did a frame job".

The driver must be the stupidest person alive. He's going to go to prison for a Nissan versa. And He never stop to think during the 125 mile drive, "hey these cops are eventually going to catch me. Maybe I should throw these drugs out the window". He deserves prison, if for no other reason just to protect the gene pool from passing on that level of stupidity

I thought of that, but that's not it. I do remember them having sex while driving and thinking 'That is REALLY unsafe.' I'd just gotten my driver's license in '94.

The scene I'm thinking of is definitely older than that as well.

It doesn't feel right. This was definitely tongue in cheek faux serious like the kinds of things you'd see in a Police Squad episode. It very well could be Police Squad now that I'm thinking of it.

I know it's not Police Academy. Those movies aren't nearly as good/silly. It just seemed too obvious not to at least mention it 😁 It's probably from Police Squad.

Cleveland is more than 126 miles from Houston.  Akron maybe.  At 100 mph it would only take a little over an hour.
 
2021-07-16 1:24:28 PM  
I'm so glad that the cops put lives in 6 counties at risk over a car. So brave, so courageous to put citizens in harms' way so they could drive fast and act "brave."

It's been many years since I knew anyone that had been in a long police chase, but they typically have serious charges and then many traffic offenses on top of that. I'm thinking if it was a personal use amount of dope it's a drop in the bucket with his other charges. Might as well be getting high until the chase is over--and reducing the amount of dope he'll be found with. So in a sense, he probably was disposing of the dope.

I was thinking the same, I should have been more specific: "Florida cop on tour did a frame job"

I remember because they used the toll booths on the Hardy Toll Road as the so called crossing into Mexico. I drove it every day so I saw when they put up Mexican Flags and a 'Welcome to Mexico' sign.

We don't know how much drugs we're talking about or where it was located.
In the door panels?

The article doesn't say what kind of drug or how much or where in the car they found it, could have been couple joints in glove box, or could have fallen off front seat onto the floor, hard to reach while running from cops, because not tossing the dope was just Gilligan stupid.

Yes, that's what lets us speculate wildly!

Maybe the load was just one big block so big it needs a forklift to be moved... maybe it was 3 packets in the glove box that were left there by the previous owner... maybe it was the driver's antibiotics prescription... the "drugs were found" is so supper vague.

Anthony Kiedis and Flea. So bad it's almost good.

That and the Hot Shots movies- though I am afraid to see if they've stood up to time- always make me a little sad at where Charlie Sheen wound up. He had great comedic timing and it was nice to see he could play both sides of the theater.
