Trying to run from the police is never a good idea – and a motorcyclist in France recently discovered this the hard way.
The clip right below shows the rider of a dirtbike causing absolute mayhem through a number of small streets in what seems like a quiet neighborhood. The rider consistently rings out the whiny two-stroke engine, making a lot of noise.
Before long, the sirens of a police car can be heard behind the motorcyclist. He (she?) takes a look behind and lo and behold, there is an undercover police vehicle chasing him. However, rather than pulling over like any sensible person would do, the rider pins the throttle and proceeds to speed through traffic in an attempt to evade the cops, weaving aggressively through traffic.
It seems as though the rider’s inexperience (and perhaps adrenaline) got the better of him, though, as during a simple left-hand turn, the biker lowsides and falls off. It only took a matter of seconds for police to arrive on the scene, ram the rider and his dirtbike and then pin him to the ground.
We don’t know why the rider tried to evade the police for so long, with total disregard for his safety (and that of others, of course). In any case, unlike Hollywood, in real life those chases never have a happy ending.
