Fleeing suspects throw bales of marijuana at police

A deputy sheriff in Pinal County, Arizona, ended up dodging bales of marijuana during a high-speed chase last week.

During a pursuit that reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour, Mario Perez-Pa and Juan Aguilar-Zavala flung boxes of weed at pursing officers. Police recovered about 374 pounds of the drug from the roadside, but noted that four or five motorists not involved in the chase stopped to pick up some of the packages for themselves, according to ABC.

Spike strips placed on the campus of Central Arizona University by Pinal County sheriffs ended the car chase. Perez and Aguilar were caught after a short chase on foot. Police believe the pair were heading towards a stash house in Mesa, Arizona, where more pot was found. Both men are facing multiple charges.
