Really Denver PD? 12 cars?
Advertisements [?]
I was just wandering around my workplace bldg outside, listening to Malloy on my iPod and this wheezing, disabled car was rambling by at 12-15 mph at the most. This cop drives by flips his lights on and veers the guy into the parking lot across the street. The guy doesn't stop, but again this old thing is dying and he's getting slower.

So, a few seconds later he has the guy stopped and he's on the ground in cuffs. Then...sirens from all directions! I was kind of amazed when 5 showed up, but then they kept on coming! Wlaked out with a friend to gawk some more, and counted 12 cop cars to catch one guy in a disabled car... Including a tan one without lights, so I expect that was the captain.

This just happened 15 minutes ago. Weird.
