Just witnessed a police chase!!

It was pretty wild to say the least. I was waiting at a light to turn left onto my street which is a 3 lane, one way road. I was turning into the far right lane, mid turn I look out my window and a see a red fox body mustang a foot from my car skidding so I punched it to get out of his way. I looked in my mirror and he's fish tailing all over, nearly swiped a few cars, tires smoking. I saw the cop come around the corner and started laughing cause I thought he was busted. Nope, he punches it and passes me in a burnout that would make Joe Dirt proud! He blew through a red light so fast the camera didn't even go off and was absolutely GONE. He had to be going 100+. The cop stopped at the light, presumably due to the ridiculous speed.

Pulled into my lot and saw the police chopper up and about. Apparently he crashed or was caught a few miles away my brother told me. I'm curious if I'll make the news on the cops dash cam! Sorry no pics but I promise it was wild. I've never witnessed something like this first hand.

Anyone else got any stories?

cheesy pic for clicks

wow, thats amazing....

(not police chase related, but involved cops)
i was driving quickly and saw a black charger turn on to the road i was on up a head. 3 lane road, he went to the far left lane, and i stayed in the middle. there was a slow truck infront of him so i got into the right lane to let him get from behind the truck. as i passed he flashed his lights (the red and blue ones) and i slowed down, he passed me and i started laughing my arse off and kept going, speed limit
