Police said an officer patrolling Highway 61 Friday night spotted a sport utility vehicle bearing license plates registered to a different vehicle, and a computer check found the owner of the vehicle, Daniel Buck of O’Fallon, had his license revoked and had several active warrants for his arrest. The driver of the truck sped up when he spotted police following him and drove onto another road while traveling at a top speed of 80 mph, police said .Police said Buck drove through a front yard and nearly struck a utility pole before his truck was disabled with stop strips. He attempted to flee on foot but was caught by officers. The suspect allegedly told police he fled because he knew he had nine warrants for failure to appear in court on various charges, and he did not want to go to jail because he was supposed to take his girlfriend to prom Saturday night.It was unclear whether Buck was able to post $15,000 cash bond in time to attend the prom.
A Florida man ended up getting grilled by cops after he repeatedly called them to ask that they grill up and deliver him some burgers along with side orders of Kool-Aid and marijuana. Jarvis Sutton called 911 nearly 80 times with his order, but couldn’t find any first-responders willing to fill it. After a few hours of non-stop calls, they did send over a patrol car to arrange for a different sort of delivery – namely, taking Sutton to jail on charges of abusing the 911 system. To prove that he really did need the burgers, Sutton treated himself to a snack on the way to the lockup – he chewed through and ate the foam surrounding the metal caging in the back of the patrol car.
