A 154 MPH High Speed Chase Ends at a Randall King Concert
Listen, I get it. I'm a big Randall King guy too. But this is something you just don't see everyday. A high speed chase from Abilene to San Angelo came to an end at King's concert Saturday night.
We're not sure if the perp is a big fan of stone cold solid country music or it was just a coincidence, but we're currently leaning toward the dude, who we can now confirm was not Garth Brooks, loves him some Randall King.
According to San Angelo Live, the owner of the truck, Jerry Cumbie, said his son "stopped at a 7-11 on Highway 351 at I-20 in Abilene and didn’t take the keys out of the ignition before walking inside the convenience store to shop."
The suspect, Iziah Rodriguez, 25, was booked into the Tom Green County Detention Center Saturday and charged with Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Evading Arrest or Detention with a Vehicle, and Evading Arrest or Detention.
Randall King, meanwhile, has been doing his part for over half-a-decade. The Hereford, TX native unleashed Shot Glass, his major label debut, earlier this year, and, ya know, continued doing his part to save country music.
