A Houston, Texas, man is likely out of his freedom and his General Lee-style Dodge Charger following a police chase. According to news reports from Houston, police clocked the man going 120 mph on a city freeway.

To catch him, police had to run his plate through their database, which led them to his apartment. When the cops showed up, the guy was taking a shower as if everything was normal.

Evading the police at 120 mph is something the Duke Boys' Charger is likely used to. This time, though, the big orange Dodge's owner was hauling marijuana, not moonshine. It's been impounded, and charges are pending.

      So if your going to break the law transporting dope and you drive 120 MPH in a car that stands out like a sore thumb.? Epic stupidity!

        How do you know he was transporting anything? Maybe he just had a joint. It doesn't really say, but the news loves to "inflate" every story.

        I'd wager the guy driving 120 in a General Lee full of MaryJane, 1. wouldn't care about your opinion 2. would never hear you say that to his face

      Who in the heck loads up a car with weed and speed down the highway to bring attention to themselves?! Idiots, that's who.

      It's called "compounding a felony"

      From the Click2Houston article (spaces between lines, and all): "According to HPD, the man told them he did not stop because he had marijuana and did not want to lose his car. He now faces felony evading and marijuana possession charges. His car was also impounded. No one was hurt."

      You guys have it all wrong, you pay this guy a great sum to run around attracting all the cops in Texas, while you pay some soccer mom and her kids to drive a Yukon towing 5000 lbs of the good stuff right past all the commotion. Have you all learned nothing from Moving Contraband for Dummies, it's like chapter 5.
