"Dallas Police Chase"
In 2001, Burnice Wilson, a man who had prior felony convictions in Oklahoma and Missouri, stole a semi truck carrying a load of lumber from a fast-food restaurant outside of Dallas, Texas. The driver didn’t notice in time to stop Wilson, but did manage to disable the air brakes on the back of the truck. Wilson led police on a 90-minute chase (honking and waving at bystanders), but the driver's quick-thinking move eventually gave police an advantage -- but not without some filmable mayhem. When the manual brakes on the truck locked up, they also sparked, igniting some of the lumber. As you see in the video, Wilson weaves the truck back and forth to dump his cargo, almost hitting a school bus. Luckily, Wilson was caught without anyone getting hurt and he was later sentenced to 99 years in prison with the option of parole in 15 years.
