A Detroit man thought it’d be no biggie to skip out on a $16 bill — but then he ended up in an action sequence straight out of Bullitt. After a Buffalo Wild Wings staffer reported the crime, the police spotted the man’s car and pulled him over. The cops gave him the chance to return to the restaurant and pay the bill, but he “yelled an obscenity at them and sped off.” Cue the dramatic, high-speed car chase down the highway. But here’s the surprise ending: Since the police knew the man’s identity, they decided to wait for him at his home. The guy’s now facing charges of fleeing and eluding, and failing to pay a restaurant bill. [Detroit Free Press]
