Really, kinda boring.

Yea but come on, that wasn’t really kidnapping. Those people were just in the wrong cars.


#4

Damn, he was determined to rack up those charges.

I wonder if the cops stole those people’s cars under civil forfeiture.


#5

I think the kidnapping was why they were chasing him before the car jacking thing.

I skimmsied. Synopsis:

23:10 car switch
48:25 hop out and back in
49:25 car switch
50:53 collision, goes on foot
51:49 apprehended

So I think he drove a total of 3 cars.

Can’t figure out why, ~ the 5:00 mark, the multiple police cars turn the wrong way… strategic, or lack of info?

Also curious what the charge was that he was trying to evade. I assume it was serious, but some people love the thrill of a challenge.

And given that he spent a bit of time toward the end driving the wrong way on a road, I can’t help thinking he didn’t realize there was a helicopter in the mix.

Is there an edited version, with just the crashes, car-jackings, and foot chases?

NVM…

I see that @SomeDude has given us the Cliff’s Notes version.

#13

24:50 the popo throw out spike strips and get the wrong car.


#14

I can’t believe people leave their doors unlocked in Denver.


#15

51:29 while on foot, he very satisfyingly falls on his ass


#16

This guy thinks he’s playing Grand Theft Auto. What an idiot.

“Desperate” or “Motivated”?


#19

Wait, I thought it was safer to drive with your doors unlocked, in case you are in an accident and someone has to pull you from the vehicle. Maybe that’s just because I don’t live in Denver.
