Man ‘Always Wanted’ Police To Chase Him

BUTTE, Mont., Feb. 7 (UPI) — A Montana man who told police he led them on a chase because he “just always wanted to do that” was fined $1,000 for reckless driving.

John Hughes, 55, of Butte was fined Thursday after pleading guilty to misdemeanor reckless driving while eluding a peace officer, The (Butte) Montana Standard reported Tuesday.

City Judge Dan Sweeney said the county attorney’s office recommended no jail time because Hughes has no criminal record and was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the offense.

Police said Hughes intentionally got a police car to chase him in Butte around 3:25 a.m. and the chase reached the interstate, where Hughes drove at speeds exceeding 100 mph.

Hughes was eventually stopped when police deflated his tires with stop sticks.

A police report quotes Hughes as saying he started the chase because “I just always wanted to do that.”
