Chicken-Fried News: Call it off 

BIGSTOCK
  • Bigstock

It never hurts to ask.

Sometimes the voice of reason speaks to people in the shower or at the dinner table.

And sometimes it screams at you while driving on the interstate at more than 100 miles per hour.

With the police hot on his tail, Clyde Landry, a suspect in an assault with a deadly weapon case, decided maybe it would be easier for everyone if the pursuit across Interstate 235 was called off and he just turned himself in.

Mid-chase, Landry called the officer chasing him and promised to give himself up to authorities if they just backed off.

He got the phone number from a group of people he knew who were previously questioned by the cop.

Police declined his offer. Apparently, they had reason to believe the guy fleeing them at 150 mph might mislead authorities about his true intentions.

After nearly 30 minutes, Landry finally turned himself in.

This time, however, he settled for pulling over on the side of the road.
