Sober Driver Baits Cops Into Chase

Why did a sober, middle-aged man lead Butte police on a dangerous, high-speed chase through the city and on the interstate early Thursday? “I just always wanted to do that,” he said, according to the police report. John C. Hughes, 55, is accused of trying to evade a police patrol just to see what it would be like, police reported. Hughes likely found out it involved severe tire damage, because police used “stop sticks” to deflate his tires to get him to stop, according to the report. Hughes was arrested without further incident and faces a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving while eluding police. Investigators say Hughes wasn’t intoxicated  and they didn’t find drugs or other contraband in his vehicle/John Grant Emeigh, Butte Standard. More here. H/T: Orbusmax
