    Bump MIKIESPLACE, too. The first rule of police contact: Do as you are told. In this case, the driver should have pulled over and stopped when he saw the lights; he would be in jail, or bonded out, instead of the graveyard.

    I guess those that believe that a "backfire" is the most plausible conclusion since no gun or casings were found in the car...have never been involved in a chase where a suspect toss evidence out a car window, have never heard of revolvers, and believe that only registered guns exist.

    Hopefully the citizens of Cleveland (pronounced "future jurors") will wait for the whole investigation to be completed before deciding.

    Did the backfire cause the people to flee, or did it cause the officer to think he heard a shot? I'm not going to speculate just yet, although I have a scenario in my head. Need a few more details, or hindsight from tenured LEO's.

    Exactly the question I have, MIKIESPLACE. Why did they run in the first place? and why would it last 25 minutes?

    Interesting! "Could a gunshot-like backfire from a car have caused Thursday's 25-minute police chase"?Could Mt. Everest be called a foot hill?Could Obama be a closet Conservative Republican?Could the top speed of a Lamborghini be 30 m.p.h.? HUGE bump to MIKIESPLACE.

    speculation, speculation, however, since when would an innocent backfire cause one to flee from many police officers for 25 minutes?
