Yes, My Boy, That is a Dumb Idea
How many high school students can claim a high speed chase on their driving resume? Probably not too many. Now, a 17 year-old Central High student in La Crosse has acheived that dubious honor. Police say the young guy drove through a red light early this morning. Cop got on his tail right away and the kid gunned it. Got about a block and a half before pulling over. Got out of the car with the officer's gun drawn on him. Guy knew he shouldn't have run. Even told the cop at the scene while he was getting arrested that doing so was likely a "dumb idea."
