Driver tells troop­ers that car chase was on his bucket list

The News (New Glasgow) - - FRONT PAGE -

DES MOINES, Iowa - The Iowa State Pa­trol says a man pulled over in Des Moines after a car pur­suit told state troop­ers that he wanted to be chased be­cause it was on his bucket list.

Des Moines tele­vi­sion sta­tion KCCI re­ports that the man re­fused to halt a lit­tle be­fore 7:30 a.m. Thurs­day when a trooper tried to stop him over a vi­o­la­tion on In­ter­state 80. The 10- to 15-minute chase ended soon after he left the in­ter­state. He was taken into cus­tody. That’s when the 46-year-old Des Moines res­i­dent shared his bucket list story with troop­ers. Court records don’t yet show that he’s been charged. State Pa­trol Sgt. Scott Bright told The As­so­ci­ated Press that he’d never heard such an ex­cuse in his 28 years of polic­ing. (AP)
