Test drive turned high-speed chase (Advantage BMW in Houston)

Anybody know anything more about this than what's reported here?

They are lucky she wasn't driving any of the M cars...LOL! However, considering she was drunk, she probably would of wrecked and killed herself if she would of been going any faster.

Glad nobody was hurt.

Looks like them boys in the 'high-performance' Dodge Charger's aren't aware of what the M cars are capable of.

"A $22,000 Dodge not only caught up with but probably could have passed an expensive German vehicle," the sheriff said, laughing. "I wonder how much BMW will pay to keep this quiet."

LAWLZ, So it was a drag race and not a high speed chase? I'm sure BMW could care less...

His comment about the $22K dodge is humorous. She was probably in a 328, and not only that she was drunk and had multiple officers after her as well as spike strips.

Reminds me of the time that they edited a chase on worlds wildest police videos to make it look like this E30 M3 got caught when in reality the person got away. They of course made more stupid comments there about those bad ass american machines

I dunno. Sounds appropriate for a fully loaded SRT8.... that's been off of the lot for about 30 min.
