Get Drunk & Steal a California Highway Patrol Cruiser? Good or Bad Idea, DUI attorneys ask?rick
What do you do after you drink alcohol, get stopped by the California Highway Patrol, get arrested for DUI but before you are handcuffed, do you steal the CHP Cruiser, lawyers wonder.
Yes! You jump in the driver’s seat of the California Highway Patrol Officer’s DUI Cruiser, you start the engine because the cop left the keys for you and you drive away real fast, San Diego DUI attorneys are told.
Then when you get from Temecula to Fallbrook, you starting crashing the California Highway Patrol DUI Officer’s car.
Oops. Too much damage to Cruiser. Cruiser slowing down. Stop.
Get out fast before the DUI cops’ back-up catches up to you.
Another bad idea is to hit a police car while drunk in San Diego county.
A brave but silly man who stole a San Diego Police patrol car at the scene of a DUI collision in San Diego was arrested in Rancho Penasquitos after a high speed pursuit lasting 30 minutes. San Diego Police put down spike strips at Black Mountain Road, causing the stolen patrol car’s tires to puncture and deflate.
