Iowa driver tells troopers that car chase was on his bucket list
DES MOINES, Iowa ó The Iowa State Patrol says a man pulled over in Des Moines after a car pursuit told state troopers he wanted to be chased because it was on his bucket list.
Des Moines television station KCCI reported the man refused to halt a little before 7:30 a.m. Thursday when a trooper tried to stop him over a violation on Interstate 80. The 10- to 15-minute chase ended soon after he left the interstate. He was taken into custody.
Thatís when the 46-year-old Des Moines resident shared his bucket-list story with troopers. Court records donít show that heís been charged.
State Patrol Sgt. Scott Bright told the Associated Press heíd never heard such an excuse in his 28 years of policing.
