Really ?, you would think he had murdered someone, 5 officers on foot couldnt catch a guy that was barely jogging, and the 2nd police car that must have been doing 60mph + up Crellin St (parked cars up either side and a cross road) shouldnt have had any reason to be putting peoples lives at risk for that,
