Usually car chases end with a pretty simple procedure: The perpetrator gets on his knees with his hands in the air while cops swarm in with guns drawn to get him in cuffs. Standard M.O. for all the California police chases that are constantly televised by eye-in-the-sky news crews. This one, however, ended like a WWE match. After an hour-long chase starting in Massachusetts, the driver of this truck ended up in Nashua, New Hampshire. When he surrendered, cops didn’t simply detain him — They beat the crap out of him before slapping a metal bracelet around his wrists. Via Boston’s WFXT:
It began around 4 p.m. in Holden, Mass. and went on several major roads including Route 2 and I-495 before continuing on surface roads in New Hampshire.
The chase ended just after 5 p.m. in Nashua, New Hampshire when the suspect got out of his car and was taken into police custody after a physical altercation.
It is unclear how the chase began or what the man was wanted for.
The guy has to be pissing blood after those kidney punches, right? A news helicopter caught the whole beatdown before zooming out.
It’s hard to be sympathetic to an asshole who decides to endanger public safety by leading police on an hour-long pursuit. Play dumb games, win dumb prizes, as the saying goes.
