A woman who won’t pull over for police calls 911 because she’s being chased by police and think she’s doing nothing wrong. She then tells the 911 officer that she’ll pull over for $300,000. Part of the dialog is below, and the entire audio is below.
Brunswick County 911, what’s your emergency?
Hi, this is Jenna, I don’t have the emergency, but the car behind me does.
I’m trying to figure out what that is because I’m driving 45 miles an hour on, I believe its Osprey Road.
And I have a contract with you guys and if you want to go ahead and declare a false sense of emergency. It’s $300,000 per incident, and I wanted to make sure that you guys are willing to pay the fee that you already owe before I pull over.
Ok, I don’t know what you’re talking about. What can I do for you?
According to myrtlebeachonline.com, the chase took about 15 minutes and reached speeds of up to 70 mph. The woman was charged with driving while impaired, felony fleeing to elude arrest, driving while license revoked, careless and reckless driving and driving left of center. She was also charged with an unrelated case of failure to appear on a pending DWI case.
Residents of a Florida neighborhood were suspicious of a man who was going door-to-door begging people for gas money.
One resident contacted the local police department and provided a description of the man.
According to clickorlando.com, an officer responded to the call and said he saw a red 2009 Cadillac CTS four-door matching the description of a stolen vehicle. Upon further investigation, authorities said in the story that they discovered the man was in possession of a Cadillac key fob belonging to the stolen vehicle.
When the man attempted to flee, he was tasered. (Sorry, we don’t have video of that.)
Police took an inventory of items in the stolen vehicle, and found that those items were also stolen in a previous burglary of an unoccupied residence. The suspect was reported to have thrown a patio block through the window of the residence to break into the home and take additional items, the story said.
The man was charged with burglary, grand theft motor vehicle, criminal mischief, escape, resisting a law enforcement officer without violence, and throwing a deadly missile into an unoccupied dwelling, ClickOrlando reported.
From time to time, there are news stories that talk about vehicles running into houses and buildings.
But to have your house struck 17 times is far from frustrating.
According to newschannel5.com, a man who lives west of Nashville awoke to a car that had driven through his home early yesterday morning. He lives across the street from a busy intersection and was awoken by the sound of a crash.
The intersection has seen many modifications over the past several years. A bigger stop sign, a flashing stop light and the word “STOP” have been printed on the pavement to help prevent any more accidents from occurring, but apparently, not everyone is getting the message.
(Just FYI: S.T.O.P doesn’t stand for Squeal Tires On Pavement. Not in this case, anyway.)
The man driving the car was arrested for driving on a revoked license and failure to show proof of insurance.
No one was injured in the accident.

Awhile ago, we asked PowerBlock fans to share their horror stories of buying cars. Though many of them were pretty shocking, we don’t think anyone would go through the extremes that one person did.
When law enforcement officials asked the car dealer if he had made anyone mad recently, he responded with, “I’m in the used car business. I could have made a lot of people mad recently.”
“But what about in the past?”
“As soon as they said, ‘the past,’ I said, ‘exwife!’ “
When the dealer found out how much his exwife hired the hitman for, he was probably more insulted than concerned.
The offer? Only $2,000.
See his entire response in the video below.

In Winster, Arkansas, a man was arrested after he rammed a patrol car, three times, with a covered wagon.
According to a story from CNN, police say the man ran from them, in the wagon, and rammed the patrol car.
The Winster man tells another story.
“I usually don’t have problems out of ‘em,” the man said to CNN about his horses. “It’s just that when they get spooked, they do get sideways a little bit.”
Police said that the man smelled like alcohol when they stopped him, CNN said; however, the man says he didn’t have an open container in the wagon with him.
Country Music Star Randy Travis was arrested and charged with DUI after being found naked on the road side.
According to ABC News, Travis walked into a convenient store, without any clothes on, before the accident. When he went to purchase cigarettes, the clerk asked, “How are you planning on paying for these?”
Travis was booked and held overnight after the accident, then released on Wednesday after posting a $21,500 bond, the story said.
According to nydailynews.com, country star Randy Travis was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
The source reports that the 53-year-old country star had wrecked his vehicle in Texas, just before midnight last night, and no other vehicles were involved in the accident.
He was driving a 1998 Pontiac Trans AM. It drove off of the road and hit barricades that were located in a construction zone, nydailynews.com said.
When officers arrived at the scene, Travis wasn’t clothed, the story said. Thankfully for all those involved, he was given clothes to wear when his mug shot was taken.
According to TMZ, Travis also threatened to “shoot and kill the troopers working the case.”
And this isn’t his only recent arrest. According to nydailynews.com, Travis was arrested in Texas in February on suspicion of public intoxication after police found him sitting inside his car in front of a church with an open bottle of wine and smelling like alcohol.
