Gentleman On Forklift Leads Cops On Low-Speed Chase

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Texas said they arrested a man who stole a forklift from a construction site and led them on a low-speed chase that ended on an interstate."


It doesn`t make any sense to attempt to outrace a police cruiser while chugging along the highway on a forklift. You would have to be out of your mind or drunk; it should come as no surprise that at one point the dude on the forklift chugged a can of beer and threw it at the cop car behind him.


You didn`t have to be a professional race car driver, a psychic or a rocket scientists to have predicted the outcome of this weird incident: The chase ended with the dude arrested.

The next time homeboy wants to go on a joyride, I`d suggest he steal a vehicle that`s a bit more inconspicuous.
