Real-life “Grand Theft Auto.” There’s really no other way to describe the scene that occurred Wednesday in Colorado, when a wanted man took police on a high-speed chase. That’s not all– as the perp leapt from one car, stole another, and another, rammed several more and drove full-speed against traffic.
According to NY Daily News, Ryan Stone led authorities in Colorado on one heck of a ride. Stone had skipped out on a court date on March 4 for a “dangerous drug” charge. The following scene occurred when police tried to apprehend Stone:
The stopping and swapping of cars looked like something right out of GTA. So did the attempts to bring drivers to a halt by ramming them. It did not always work, and Stone was eventually brought into custody after he met his match– a fence. Hey, the guy might not have a great vertical leap, but check out that lateral agility…
Oh, then there was the police throwing the spike strip that accidentally took out the car of an innocent bystander. We don’t think GTA has a scoring system for police collateral damage. That’s just local law enforcement bonus points!
