A 25-year-old has been involved in a high-speed chase through Houston, Texas after allegedly stealing a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
The man, Mohmed Ahmed Abu-Shlieba, led police on a high-speed chase behind the wheel of the Hellcat and thanks to the car’s 707 hp, eventually outran the police cars in pursuit.
Unfortunately for Abu-Shlieba, a police helicopter was tracking his every move as he easily topped 100 mph (160 km/h) on I-10 while recklessly weaving between traffic. The chase soon came to an end after the gas-guzzling Hellcat ran out of fuel, prompting Abu Shlieba to flee on foot through a cow field. He was arrested shortly after.
When facing court about the chase, Abu-Shlieba reportedly showed no remorse and boasted about how fast he was going.
In an intriguing turn of events, a police officer involved in the arrest is being investigated for punching Abu-Shlieba in the face after detaining him.
