Speeder Nabbed Chasing, Ah, Bigfoot

A man who told police he was hunting Sasquatch is in the Benewah County Jail after a high speed chase that ended with his arrest Sunday in Worley. David Mack Albrethsen, 39, is charged with felony eluding after deputies and tribal police used a nail strip to stop his vehicle in Worley. He was arrested a few days earlier for eluding officers in Utah, police said. The Orem, Utah man was driving north on Highway 95 at 12:02 a.m. Sunday in a blue 1999 Toyota Corolla when a county deputy clocked his speed at 80 mph, according to a police report/Ralph Bartholdt, St. Maries Gazette-Record.

Question (either/or): Do you believe Sasquatch exists? Or: What's the best excuse you've given an officer who pulled you over for speeding?
