An East Alabama man traveling through Montgomery tried to outrun police Sunday. What started as a routine checkpoint, turned into a high speed chase on Gibson Street in north Montgomery.
Police were checking drivers licenses and proof of insurance Sunday morning, but one driver sped off nearly hitting an officer. He led police down the Northern Boulevard and Interstate 65 at speeds upward of 90 miles per hour. He even reversed directions at times to try and get away. He eventually blew a tire on Fairview Avenue.
