    I was on the 44th flloor of an offcie building downtown and they went right under me.

    He had a girl with him, was armed, and was flying through the middle of the central business district during the middle of a workday.

    That made it more newsworthy than the average freeway chase scene.

    What a dillweed. lol
    At least there were no serious injuires.

    "Dallas police policy says officers can generally only chase suspects wanted for violent felonies."

    That's a good policy.

    He was an armed robbery suspect.
    The women was supposedly the mother of his child and was pulled into the SUV against her will.

    I think in the end--once he realized no way he was escaping--he was actually trying surrender (called police on his cell) but didn't want to get blown away if he got out of the car. He went downtown a bit longer then got out and got on the ground. Because he was armed, it was a good ending for sure.

    Oh yeah, we wasn't armed like your average Joe, he had a handgun and...an AK-47. Jeesh
