If you see a police officer zigzagging across multiple lanes of traffic on a highway and signalling you to stop, it’s pretty obvious that you must obey. Common sense, though, might not be so common after all.
Case at hand, the dashcam footage that shows the driver of a black SUV blatantly disregarding an officer doing just that and simply driving on.
The following video, filmed in California, starts out by showing a California Highway Patrol officer weaving down the highway with his lights on and the cammer is slowly grinding to a halt behind the officer. While it’s initially unclear why the police officer is stopping, an object soon comes into view in the middle of the road. Apparently, it’s some kind of exercise machine which, presumably, fell out of a truck or pickup traveling along the road.
While watching a police officer remove something from the road might be boring, things do get interesting as a black SUV passes the stationary officer on the right shoulder despite the officer clearly telling the driver to stop. As it turns out, it was not a wise decision.
Not about to let the driver get away, the California Highway Patrol officer quickly gets back in his Dodge Charger and chases after the SUV, eventually pulling them over. We’re not sure what transpired next, but they must have had a pretty good excuse for disregarding the officer’s instructions, or else they could be in serious trouble.
