    A chase on the 91 Freeway and CA-241 Toll Road in Orange County, California.
    This could have been right out of a Benny Hill episode, but it is an actual police chase...with a woman driver!

    Wonderful! It's amazing how strongly the Yakkety Sax soundtrack makes it look funny (the producers knew exactly what they were doing in the Benny Hill shows!)

    I'm left wanting to hear what she said, though, and what she was charged with ...

    No doubt the driver was having a bit of fun (up to the point when the police cars blocked the car in).... as to why.... drunk or high on drugs? Who knows.

    At about 57secs does she get out and take a shot at the police?

    The vehicle seemed to be moving as well if she did. Damn dangerous going into one way traffic, surely a good driver wouldn't do that. First time I've seen a 4-5 car star stop method.

    Well I enjoyed it just shows a under powered little car driven by a women gave those big beasts with the flashing lights a complete run around,it was a unusual chase you could practically see the thoughts of the police "hey that was not in the pursuit manual"
