Police in Butte, Montana say a man, who led them on a high-speed chase for no apparent reason, baffled them. 55-year-old John Hughes drove at speeds of more than 100 mph before police used “stop sticks” to deflate his tires and bring the chase to an end. They were surprised to find that Hughes was not intoxicated and they found no evidence of drugs or alcohol in his car. He told authorities he started the chase because he “just always wanted to do that.”
Authorities said Hughes was very fortunate because high speed chases often end up in serious collisions or roll-over accidents. A California man was serious injured when he rolled his car several times at the end of a chase. Police said Hughes faces misdemeanor charges of reckless driving while eluding police. Sheriff John Walsh told a local paper, “That’s the first time I’ve ever heard of anything like that.”
