Would-be cop gets caught

A man in Florida who led cops on several chases on his motorcycle turned out to be an officer in training. The 24-year-old man was about to take his final exam for the police academy when police were finally able to stop him. The man led police on chases with speeds in excess of 140 mph. On the final chase, the man had given cops the slip and hid his bike in his bedroom. When police arrived at the suspect's house, he pretended to be washing his car. His dog, however, knocked down the blinds in his bedroom as he was barking at the window and police saw the hidden bike. The man was charged with three counts of aggravated fleeing, two counts of aggravated assault on law enforcement officers and one count of reckless driving.
