Can’t fault him for following advice of counsel.
I really want to know more about the tractor. That’s the worst possible getaway vehicle.
Sounds like an elevator pitch for the best heist/chase movie ever…
I was thinking video game, but, yeah.

There’s a very Vermont form of transit missing from this chase that leaves me a shade disappointed - snowmobile.
The modern hexathlon.
Or an ethically dubious children’s book.
GTA6: Montpelier is going to be lit!
There’s a part of me that really wants the defense attorney in this case to try and argue that he doesn’t constitute a flight risk.
I stopped in Vermont on the way north one winter, and asked for directions in a store. The shopkeeper just kept telling me to cut across this farmer’s field, which didn’t seem viable. We eventually realized that he assumed we were on snowmobiles. When we went back outside laughing to ourselves we looked around and everyone else in that small downtown was indeed on snowmobiles.
We spun off the road and had to be pulled out of a snowbank by a passing plow later that afternoon.
I don’t care how many novelty vehicles they drag in, a reboot without John Candy is like polka without an accordion.

This sounds like The Great Escape, but starring Ferris Bueller…
Ooh! That’s the part that really hits me hard. Bicycle thieves should all rot in hell.
