(La Porte, IN) - A 20-year-old man caught speeding stepped on the gas pedal even further to try and evade a La Porte County Police officer. Instead of outrunning the police, he wound up in jail.
Police said the suspect was clocked at 75 miles per hour on U.S. 35 in the Kingsford Heights area and then tried losing the officer. The officer was up to 118 miles per hour but still gaining no ground on the southbound Indy 500-like driver. After a few miles, the officer finally pulled the car over.
Maung Aye told officers he was trying to get back home in Ft. Wayne and acted like he didn’t do anything wrong. Aye was arrested for resisting law enforcement and reckless driving.
