Bryan Owens, 22, was taken into custody following an armed robbery and a high-speed chase that involved law enforcement units from three counties. Police officials said he is being charged with hijacking a motor vehicle, armed robbery, several counts of aggravated assault against a police officer, and other charges. Dougherty County Jail records show that the other charges include probation violation, attempt to elude and parole violation.
After yesterday’s announcement that Jeremy Clarkson would be leaving the show, enterprising videographer Jon Harvey put together this amusing – and totally unofficial – commemoration. I bet Porsche, Mclaren and Ferrari all feel relieved with this outcome. I was really looking forward to that race. I am certain the show will be re-branded on a different network with the same cast. Over 300 million viewers with $50 million in revenue will entice someone other than BBC to pick up the show.
In a prank for the ages, professional racing champion Leona Chin disguised herself in an oversized pair of glasses and a denim vest before getting behind the wheel of the car. Instead of a driving lesson, these instructors got the most terrifyingly fast ride of their lives on their very first day at work.
Reporters asked James May if he would stay presenting after hearing the official word from the BBC that Clarkson had been sacked. May replied, “Well I don’t wanna talk about that too much, but I think the three of as a package, it works for very complicated reasons that a lot of people don’t fully understand.” Hopefully this means they all leave together and move to a new channel!
An intoxicated driver was filmed causing a major accident in DeKalb, Illinois. The driver was apparently approached by several individuals in an attempt to stop him from driving. Their attempts were unsuccessful and the man drove off into the street. Less than 100 metres later, he caused an accident with another vehicle.
Driving may soon become a thing of the past, with companies testing and developing technology that allows vehicles to be autonomous. However, none have done it quite as slick as Mercedes-Benz. Its F-015 concept car, or “research car” as Mercedez-Benz dubs it, debuted at CES, with the German automobile company treading innovations in technology instead of the auto industry. The gleaming silver vehicle looks like it’s from the future, but check out a ride inside it today.
The Chevy small-block V8 is an engine that has touched so many lives that, no matter where your car brand loyalty lies. It has powered tens of millions of passenger cars, trucks, race machines and boats. To celebrate 60 years of this icon, watch this one get carefully taken apart and put it back together again in fast forward!
It’s now spring in the midwest so Sitdown Steve and friends decided to breakout the street bikes and light the tires up. Watch as this daredevil goes across all 4 lanes of traffic surrounded by cars and completely smokes out the highway with a massive burnout.
A man has been arrested after a dramatic high speed police chase in northern California that topped 100 miles per hour. It began near the town of Vacaville when officers tried to stop a Nissan estate with a suspect number plate. The driver refused to pull over and sped off with the police in hot pursuit. The chase finally ended near Los Altos Hills after the car got a puncture, skidded into a wall and flipped over.
Jeremy Clarkson, the suspended presenter of the BBC’s Top Gear show, launched into a crazy rant about how execs at the network are a bunch of “f**ken bastards”. Clarkson said at a charity gala event in London that he believes he will be sacked over claims he punched a Top Gear producer. The divisive TV presenter and columnist was up on stage offering a last lap of the Top Gear track as part of the charity auction. It was bought for £100,000 and will go towards helping young people get into the arts industry. On one hand this is brilliant, Clarkson showing the BBC where they can stick their show. BBC are going to loose millions. On the other hand, it was my favourite show, and I’m devastated. Leave your thoughts in our comment section now!
A motorcyclist who taunted officers with high-speed antics during an hourlong pursuit through two Southern California counties was arrested without a struggle. Phillip Resendez, 22, was chased for reckless driving. Resendez’ Honda motorcycle, a little the worse for wear, was taken away by a tow truck. He is expected to appear in court today.
The lad appears to use a lighter to set fire to a corner of the paper, before adding the flaming piece to more newspapers, and then leaving the bus at the next stop. Passengers were evacuated, but the top deck was gutted as smoke billowed from the windows, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage. Investigating officer, Sergeant Gareth Snyman said: “This is a completely mindless act of vandalism that has caused thousands of pounds worth of damage as well as disruption to passengers and other motorists.”
