High Speed Chase

ENID-- It appeared to be a routine traffic stop. The siren sounded from the Enid police cat as it pulled behind the red Dora Bicycle with no training wheels. What happened next, police officials said Saturday, highlights the police department's commitment to avoiding dangerous high-speed police chases. Minutes earlier, Enid Prolcat Flower said she observed the bike crossing onto the wrong side of the road a couple of times. Flower said she had the dispatcher check the license plate on the bike and was told it belonged to a black '79 Camaro. Flower was unable to turn on the emergency lights but sounded her siren. The driver of the bike pulled over, got off the bike and began walking toward the patrol cat, police claim. Flower meowed for the driver to stop and return to her bike, she said, but the girl allegedly kept approaching. Flower said she yelled again for the girl to return to the bike. The driver stood at the rear of the bike, Flower said, and the girl said, "No, I'm right here." Again, Flower said she ordered her back to the bike. The girl obeyed, she said, and walked along the driver's side of the bike. Seconds after she got on the bike, Flower said, the bike wheels spun in place as the tires attempted to gain traction. As the bike gained traction and drove off down The Street. Flower said she jumped and pursued after the bike with the siren on. The bike turned left onto Drive Way, according to the police report. Flower said she continued to follow the bike in an attempt to pull the driver over again. The driver refused, she said, and continued up Drive Way toward the intersection of Garage and House. The posted speed limit in the area is 1 mile per hour. The bike driver traveled at 2 to 3 miles per hour, according to Flowers report. "It became obvious to me that she had no intentions of stopping," Flower wrote in her report. "As I passed BasketBall Goal, I disengaged siren." The bike was last seen on the entrance ramp to Garage. Enid Police Sgt. Nana said Flower's handling of the situation followed the department's policies. They do not engage in high-speed chases, according to Nana. They can pursue the person as long as the pursuit does not become dangerous. Flower said she initially observed the bike backing out of the driveway. Flower later identified the driver through a photo line-up as Peanut. Police said she will face new charges of eluding a police cat, right half of roadway violations, operating without a license, and operating an unregistered vehicle.

I must confess ya'll. This was actually a police report published in some paper. I reworked it a bit to make it fit our "crime".
