Man leads police on chase in stolen ice cream truck
WORCESTER, Mass. (WHDH) -- A man is accused of stealing an ice cream truck and using it to lead police on a slow-speed chase in Worcester.
Police chased the man through streets of Worcester, Leicester and into nearby Charlton; all in pursuit of a stolen ice cream delivery truck.Now, for extra bonus points, tell me how the second city name there is pronounced...
I got nothing else, really; just thought this was so hysterically stupid that it had to be shared. I like the part about how the dude stopped and bought beer - parking the stolen ice cream truck outside the liquor store - before continuing on his way. Because nothing says "low-key" like a five-ton refrigerator truck with ice cream all over the side, right?
There's a downside, of course - the two front tires were blown out in the effort to stop the truck, and they had to break the driver's window to get the guy out. Can't say I blame the cops - that's the kind of truck that could really do some damage had the guy decided to get belligerent, and he locked himself in the cab (maybe to enjoy his beers before going to jail?). Then again, for the price of a set of tires and a window, they have their truck back in one piece - and no news footage of some drunken idiot smashing cars with their ice cream truck.
Yep. More fun from the MA roadways - first drunken doctors, now pilfered ice cream trucks...
That is all.
