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.
