We don’t advocate running from the cops. Not only is it illegal, doing so can get you into a heap of trouble as you’ll likely rack up a few felonies and such in the process. But if you are going to give police a chase, the best thing you can do is have a car which is way faster than theirs. That was exactly the situation when a guy in a Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody took off on Little Rock police in Arkansas recently.
Learn why the story of a stolen Bentley Mulsanne has taken a weird turn here.
The incident in question went down on November 23 just after 5:30 in the morning. At a time when most people are still trying to catch those last few moments of sleep before getting ready for work, a guy in his Mopar muscle car caught the attention of an officer.
One might think it’s odd that the cop focused on the Charger Hellcat and not on the Dodge Challenger which was directly behind it, then pulled into the lane next to it. However, the story is the lead car was reported stolen. Either the officer recognized the vehicle or was running a plate reader and got a hit. Realizing he’s dealing with a slam dunk case, he calls it in while sitting at a red light, then maneuvers to go in for the kill.
