You Can't Outrun The Cops

Another dumb criminal... who thought he could speed his way out of a ticket. From the Indystar:
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Police said a motorcyclist led them on an interstate highway chase at speeds of up to 150 mph and left them in the dust. But they had the cycle's license number and cited Ryan Lewis, 19, of Eugene after going to his home and finding the motorcycle hidden behind his house.

Oregon State Police Capt. Calvin Curths said he was in an unmarked car in a construction zone on Interstate 5 Monday evening when the motorcycle sped past him. He said he measured the speed at 72 mph in a 50-mph zone, accelerating to as much as 150 mph before police gave up the chase.

Lewis was cited for reckless driving and eluding an officer.
Remember kiddies: don't drink and drive, don't speed, and don't try to out run the cops.
