An American man has been fined US$1,000 for leading police on a car chase just because he always wanted to be in one.
According to the Huffington Post, John Hughes had always dreamed of taking part in a police chase, and set about making his dream a reality.
The chase took place last week and began after Hughes followed a police car for seven blocks then abruptly turned around and sped off.
Police used a spike strip to bring Hughes' car to a halt after his speeds exceeded 160km/h.
