When Fred Phillips, retired public-safety director and police chief of Johnson City, Tenn., was a regular police office, he and his partner pulled over an unlicensed motorist. They asked the man to follow them to the police station, but while en route they spotted a North Carolina vehicle whose license plate and driver matched the description in an all-points bulletin. The officers took off in a high-speed chase, and finally stopped the wanted mans car.
Minutes later, as the felon was being arrested, the unlicensed motorist drove up. “If yall will just tell me how to get to the station, Ill wait for you there,” he said. “Im having a heck of a time keeping up with you.”
