We see them on TV. They even pop up in our Facebook feed live from TV stations.

Sometimes there's just nothing like a good police chase.

(Scroll on down to the bottom to see the full video!)

Normally these things are based out of the big cites, they seem to have them happen on a daily basis there to be honest.

It's a little different though when a really good one pops up in a city near you.

Today's chase comes straight out of Borger, just one little hour away from Amarillo. It's not very often you see excitement like this in a bitty town like that, and this was one heck of a chase.

As you can see, this one starts off innocently enough. Just a random truck blowing through a bunch of lanes that he shouldn't be doing. This is NOT a legal entry to the roadway and crossing of lanes. An officer was right there to stop him for his traffic misstep.

Unfortunately for Jimmy McHenry, he decided not to pull over. He had decided that a traffic ticket really just wasn't in his future.

The officers decide at this point to try and stop Jimmy a different way. They try to gauge where he's headed and drop down some strips to flatten his tires. Unfortunately, Mr. McHenry didn't come down this way and they packed up shop pretty quickly. They would try the strips again, but Jimmy would dart to the other side of the road and avoid them.

Ahhh, at long last we have our suspect. Mr. McHenry high sides his vehicle up on some grass and attempts to get out and run. There were several officers on scene at this point and he didn't stand a chance of getting away. He was quickly tased and taken down to the ground where officers promptly arrested him.

Whatever it is Jimmy was trying to avoid, he didn't...and he got hit with even more because of his little journey. Mr. McHenry was ultimately charged with the following:

I guess we can see the reason he was running. He seems to have had prior experience in trying to avoid police, and for good reason. You can watch the entire chase below. Enjoy!

RANKED: America's Top 12 Best-Looking State Trooper Cruisers

Did you know that there is a brotherhood of state troopers called the American Association of State Troopers (AAST)? Their goal: PROTECT. PROVIDE. CONNECTAccording to their website the AAST was formed in 1989 when a "small group of Florida state troopers had the vision to create an association that would unite state troopers across the country and assist them by providing valuable benefits and services."

Each year the AAST releases a calendar of the best looking state trooper cruisers. Ranking is determined by their Facebook followers. It's all for a great cause too. Proceeds benefit the AAST Foundation, which provides higher education scholarships for AAST troopers' children dependents. A noble cause by any measure.
