Jeez — go any faster and the flux capacitor’s going to kick in

flux-capacitor.jpgDavid F. Vanhousin, a 33-year-old Tennessee man, wrecked himself on some crack and decided it would be a good idea to start cruising around in his Chevy Suburban. Vanhousin wound up getting into an accident in the middle of an intersection and sped off. A driver spotted the Suburban and called in a possible drunk driver, which resulted in a high speed chase.

The cops put up spike strips, but that didn’t stop Vanhousin and his blazing fast Suburban.

No sir. What stopped Vanhousin is when a cop walked up to the car and pulled the keys from the ignition.

So yeah, Vanhousin was so van-housed that he didn’t know he was even being chased, and it wasn’t so much a “high speed chase” as it was Vanhousing going only about 5 miles per hour. When he randomly stopped his car for a second time during this chase, Sgt. David Prather lept into action, and got Vanhousin’s keys. Brilliant.
