Early Thursday morning, Hughes followed a patrol car for 7 blocks before pulling his SUV around and taking off at speeds of up to 70 mph. He was allegedly “having a bad day,” and just wanted to go for a drive.
Police used “stop sticks” to deflate his tires. Hughes was not intoxicated, and faces charges of reckless driving while eluding police. Fortunately, the only thing that was hurt was Hughes’ driving record.
