Man leads police on chase due to boredom
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.
