Man leads po­lice on chase due to bore­dom

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Sher­iff ’s of­fi­cials say a Wash­ing­ton state man led po­lice on a chase across two coun­ties be­cause he was bored. Me­dia re­ports that the 30year-old man had no war­rants or prior con­vic­tions and had a valid driver’s li­cense when he took off through an in­ter­sec­tion near Olympia late Satur­day. Af­ter burn­ing rub­ber, a sher­iff ’s deputy tried to pull him over. The sus­pect did not com­ply. The pur­suit lasted for more than an hour and crossed two coun­ties and 79 kilo­me­tres be­fore the sus­pect hit a fence and was ap­pre­hended. There was no ev­i­dence that the driver was im­paired by drugs or al­co­hol.
