Suspect Leads Dozens Of Cops On Hour-Long Chase Through Countryside, Is Rewarded With Beatdown

A suspect who led cops on a chase from Louisville to the southeast Indiana backwoods treated a few dozen police cruisers like Barry Sanders treated NFL defenses as he juked, reversed, and eventually ran around in laps before being corralled and eventually–it appears—kicked and punched by the presumably embarrassed lawmen.


WLKY in Louisville reported they believed the suspect to be wanted for stealing purses from customers’ cars as they filled up at a Kentucky gas station. The chase, which resembled GTA at times if the police AI slider were dragged down to “lobotomized,” finally came to an end as the suspect drove into a field and was surrounded; he was then dragged from his car and, it appears, given a beatdown by a horde of cops.
