This week in Phoenix, a man is in trouble with authorities after a fight with his wife, driving under the influence and leading officers on a chase. Fox 10 News reported that officers chased the man after he clocked 45 MPH, which was above the posted speed limit.
Police say that they had received reports that a car was speeding on the Loop 202 near McClintock. When an officer attempted to pull the vehicle over, the driver kept speeding and tried to exit on Broadway, taking the off-ramp at 100 MPH.
Sgt. Jeff Baum told news sources, "caught up to the vehicle near McClintock and 202 and it was traveling in excess of 120."
Police say that the driver only stopped when he got into a car accident with a SUV that was exiting the freeway. Neither driver suffered injuries during the crash.
When police finally spoke with the man, he blamed the whole incident on his wife and admitted that he had been drinking prior to driving.
