I'm glad they caught this guy, but what I don't understand is that to my knowledge Wellington St. E and Fauquier Ave do not even intersect each other?
dvb 2/10/2013 9:46:15 AM Report

Or I misunderstood and the police had a RIDE program on both streets. Either way, good job SSM Police for nabbing this guy... They never learn...

If anyone bothers to actually check a map, I personally recommend maps.google.com, Fauquier is cut in half by the train tracks. And it does in fact connect to Wellington and to Oakland ave.

Well I guess I've been told! Thanks CRANK!

These idiots still don't get it do they? Not only does he risk others lives including his own, did he actually think he was going to outrun the cops? Old enough to know better.

Good job getting these drunks off our roads. When are people going to smarten up? Stricter penalties as well as outrageous insurance premiums should be automatic for individuals like this. Thankfully he got caught before someone got hurt.
