Saw a car chase today. We were on our way to Friendly’s and saw what looked like a roadblock ahead. Turns out it was actually two cop cars, flanking another car, headed our way. We pulled over, of course, totally excited! I mean, how often do you get to witness first hand a car chase?! The perp (!) was going really slow, and when they passed us, we could hear them yelling at each other-two black women up front, and a black guy in the back seat on his cell phone. Which begs the question-who do you call on your cell when you’re in the middle of a car chase with the cops? Your lawyer? Your mom? Anyway, I digress….we kept watching as they passed us, and just a little behind us, once they passed our small group of cars, one of the cops sped up, and swerved his car in front of the perp’s sideways to cut her off. It looked like she may have actually hit the cop car at that point. We also saw the other cop pull up along side the driver’s side, jump out of his car, and draw his gun. I couldn’t say what happened next, as by this point, we had gotten just far enough away that traffic was impeding our view.
Pretty cool, huh? Almost like a “Cops” episode, only minus the transvestite trucker.
