I came home from work and my wife asked me about this. She'd gotten home early and spent the better part of the afternoon watching this (we have Houston locals on our dish; never bothered to change them when we moved).

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

It was wild enough they showed it here on (I think CNN) for a hour live... I did not get to see how it ended after he drove that chevy into the water with no front tires, or wheels left.
Armed robbery, then shoots at police, then runs like MAD for a hour. In Texas, will this character walk in a couple weeks no harm done or what?

I haven't lived in Harris County since Johnny Holmes (former DA) retired, but it used to be a pretty tough county, prosecutionwise. My guess is that little has changed. Doubt he will walk if he took a shot at a cop.

Never saw one inch of video but certainly heard allllll about it. Shooting at the cops will have this fella in a heap of trouble.

What I think may come up soon is that if he ran like that after holding up a two bit dry cleaners, he has a reason that we regular folk may not yet be aware of?

The only funny part we thought of, he probably burnt more in fuel in that hour chase, than he got from the heist...
