I have often wondered to myself what I would do in the event of being pulled over by the cops. This never came to mind:
An unidentified young man, 20, was driving east on U.S. Highway 40 near Strawberry Reservoir when a deputy tried to stop him for going 15 miles over the speed limit, according to Wasatch County Chief Deputy Sheriff Jared Rigby. The driver did not stop and the deputy told dispatchers he was pursuing a fleeing driver.
A short time later, a dispatcher notified the deputy that the driver had called in and said “that he was not going to stop and that I needed to leave him alone,” Rigby said, reading from the deputy’s report.
On paper this technique makes sense. After all, he was having girlfriend issues and who wants to deal with tailing police officers when your heart was just broken? Unfortunately it didn’t turn out very well for him as his car was stopped by tire spikes, ending the chase.
