If you ever find yourself in front of daunting red and blue lights, be thankful they don't belong to Houston's top cop – like one Houston driver experienced Friday.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo was driving on the Hardy Toll Road when the driver of a Dodge Viper allegedly blew past him at 140 mph, the chief told Chron.com.

"It almost took my doors off," Acevedo said describing the moment.

He radioed the driver into police dispatch and gave chase in his police Chevrolet Tahoe, topping out around 120 mph, he said.

Why do we think this traffic stop became public. Here's why! This police chief loves the spot lite. He is just like Sheila Jackson Lee. He would chase a TV camera crew to
Alaska to be on TV. Who ever heard of a cop call the media to report he wrote a speeding ticket? There have been hundreds or thousands of speeders doing 140 stopped. Of course most of them went to jail for endangering the public, or people in their car, or driving to fast for road conditions. This guy is the most flaky police chief Houston has ever had. We need a new mayor and a new police chiev.

At 140mph, the driver should have been arrested for Reckless Driving.

The Harris County District Attorney's office generally will not accept a reckless driving charge unless someone was injured or there was property damage.
