Former NASCAR driver leads police on 2-state chase

Uncategorized

Ex-NASCAR driver Timothy Tyler Andrew Walker led authorities on a chase through Nevada and southern Utah on Wednesday. Walker had marijuana, pills and open containers of alcohol in his vehicle.

Walker failed to stop for an officer in Nevada, and Arizona Department of Public Safety officers unsuccessfully tried to deflate the tires of his car. Walker’s luxury BMW sedan came to a stop in Utah after two Utah Highway Patrol troopers set up spike strips. He tried unsuccessfully to flee on foot before being arrested.

The former NASCAR driver  was charged with evading police, driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, possession of cannabis, possession of amphetamine, driving with an open container of alcohol and transporting alcohol across state lines.

Walker competed in 28 NASCAR races before being suspended for violating the association’s drug policy in 2007. He drove in 19 NASCAR Nationwide series and nine Camping World Truck Series races during his career.

I follow Nascar..and have for years...this guy is a hack...only reason Nascar was even brought up was for ratings. I guess he forgot in real life you cant pull in and get fresh tires and a full tank in 12 seconds.

"The former NASCAR driver  was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of cannabis..." aren't those the same thing?

Nevada, Arizona, Utah...

 

Wouldn't that be a THREE state chase?

 

Oh, that's right. This is Sports Illustrated, not a publication where math skills are needed to be a headline writer.
