Man Rolls His Challenger After Running From Cops At 130 mph
May 13th, 2019
Driving on the shoulder is always a no-go. But it's definitely a bad call if you're doing say, 130 mph. Colorado resident, Rafael Cotlear, was arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase on I-70 in his Dodge Challenger Hellcat.
Police received several reports of a reckless driver on the highway and spotted him heading westbound in heavy traffic. When the officer tried to pull him over, Cotlear accelerated to at least 130 mph, passing cars on the shoulder to get away. The pursuit was called off for safety reasons however, an off-duty officer later called in that the car had rolled off the road across the median.
Traffic was stopped and Cotlear was brought to a hospital with minor injuries before being taken into custody and booked on a DUI charge, along with reckless driving, reckless endangerment, exhibition of speed, damage to a highway structure and no proof of insurance.
