He would have got away if he didn’t keep stopping for a quick beer every time he got a good lead on the cops.

It might be time to offer some driving training and pursuit training to those cops.  Getting spanked by a relatively  plain jane truck is NOT a good story for the break room.  I also miss the speedometer info on the dash cam :(

Here he's turning around on a dead end road.

TIL: Sheboygan Sheriff's Department can't afford windshield washer fluid.

Police defunding.

What if he could drive off. Would that make it ok to shoot his tires, his engine?  I'd say the police had the duty of preventing someone whose driving jeopardized the citizens from going anywhere.

The unfortunate truth (out here) is numerous lawsuits won by bystanders being injured & killed by fleeing criminals has led to police backing off and monitoring from afar.   If the police weren’t chasing him he wouldn’t have been going 100 MPH and my spouse would still be alive today... Most of our departments have air assets and cooperation with news /media helo’s too so it’s pretty hard to outrun them.

Killing bystanders in a high speed pursuit is an even worse outcome.  What you just saw was a pretty good restrained and coordinated chase and capture

44 year old drunk driving and no license 

I'd say remove his license forever, but I know that doesn't work.  Maybe we need a program where once convicted too many times someone has to stop by the police station every day for a breathalizer test.  Fail and go to jail.  Don't show and go to jail.

I'm known to be rather harsh drunks however having grown up with one as my step dad.

If you go 2 blocks turn right you are at my house

A couple of weeks ago my wife was watching late news and a pursuit came on.  She sees they are heading our way and can hear the helo’s as she watches the pursuit pass by a couple of blocks away.  

She then wakes me up to tell me.  Want me to get the gun? No, Sheesh go back to sleep...

The ankle cuffs they give you when you're under house arrest can continuously monitor your sweat for alcohol.  I wonder if they could set it up so it gives an electric shock when a positive condition is detected.

You goaded me into YouTubing up my town. Someone shot 15 mins worth of a driving tour of Monroe a couple weeks ago. 
 

 

Oh cool.  My town is small enough not to have a video so it has some time laps pics instead.  To get the vid this long I believe they repeated some of the roads.  For rhodies though there is some nice riding.  Not much room to hide, but nice riding anyway.

Monroe is only 75 miles from Newnan where we will be spending more time when Wo46 retires.

I can count on one hand how many times I’ve been in snow that deep.
