You're Never Too Old to Run from the Po-Po

A 74-year-old man was arrested Tuesday following a police chase that ended in Port Gamble, Wash.  It all started when reports came in of a man driving erratically into oncoming traffic with his emergency flashers on. A trooper located the vehicle and performed a traffic stop. As he approached the car, the vehicle sped off. 

At one point during the lengthy, dangerous (multiple bouts of driving into oncoming traffic lanes) pursuit, the law-breakin' papaw even displayed his middle finger out the window. Take that, coppers! 

Eventually, he headed over an embankment into an old mill site, and was then airlifted to a local hospital. No word yet on his condition.
