You know how it is, your driving along minding your own business possibly going slightly over the thirty five miles per hour speed limit, when suddenly you find that there is a police traffic cop bearing down on you, what do you do?
Well you are driving a 2000 Dodge Viper, so why not make a run for it!
This is exactly what happen, Officer Mario Marzetta of the Plainfield Police Department, heard the car coming way before he could even see it, speeding along Essington Road, passing the officer at around 127 mph, in a 35 mph zone.
The driver was eventually stopped and charged with felony fleeing and eluding the police, this was after he had driven at speed through interchanges and on into an industrial park where he tried to hide from the police by parking the in a parking lot, unfortunately there are not many Dodge Vipers around with custom paint jobs, including a stars and stripes painted on the hood.
The driver was unaware of the powers of the police, they can seize any vehicle that is involved in a felony, and in this case that is exactly what the police dept has done. The Dodge Viper has now been repainted in the police dept colors and has a set of lights on the roof too.
