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

Des Moines tele­vi­sion sta­tion KCCI re­ports the man re­fused to halt Thurs­day when a trooper tried to stop him over a vi­o­la­tion on In­ter­state 80 a lit­tle be­fore 7:30 a.m.. 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 he’d never heard such an ex­cuse in his 28 years of polic­ing.
