Driver Escapes After Wild Chase But Hours Later Does Something Crazy And Gets Caught
A reckless driver with a need for speed led cops on a death-defying cat and mouse chase, before skidding to a halt and escaping on foot. The video shows the dramatic chase and then reveals what unexpected move 33-year-old Warren Gray made hours later that led to his arrest. Sergeant Lee Beck said the man’s actions endangered others’ lives. "Gray’s actions were not only dangerous but incredibly selfish and thoughtless, he gave no consideration for anyone but himself, putting other people’s lives potentially at risk." The police pursuit began after an unmarked patrol car ran a check on the vehicle and had no registered owner. But as the police officer turned on the lights to initiate a traffic stop, Gray drove off and sparked a chase. At one point several vehicles try to box him in and officers rush to force his door open, but Gray manages to ram his way out. Minutes later he skidded to a halt and jumped out of his vehicle and hid in a nearby field where officers couldn't find him. According to Sergeant Beck, he then took an unusual step to try to “cover his tracks,” which ended up leading to his arrest. Gray, of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK, was charged with driving while disqualified, dangerous driving and committing an act with intent to pervert the course of justice. He was found guilty after a three-day trial and was jailed for two years and four months on June 30 last year. "Gray could very easily have caused a serious, if not fatal collision that morning due to his reckless behaviour and negligence on the road,” Beck said.
