Sharpton Evades Police for 9 Miles
NewsMax ^ | 8/29/05 | AP

Posted on 08/29/2005 6:16:24 PM PDT by wagglebee

A driver for the Rev. Al Sharpton led Ellis County sheriff's deputies on a nine-mile chase at speeds up to 110 mph before state troopers stopped the car, authorities said.

The driver was rushing Sharpton to the airport after his visit with anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan on Sunday at her camp outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford. The car carrying Sharpton and two other passengers was clocked doing 110 mph in a 65 mph zone on Interstate 35 in Ellis County in North Texas, said Lt. Danny Williams.

The car ignored deputies' attempts to stop it and continued speeding and weaving in and out of traffic before it was stopped, Williams said.

Calls Monday to Sharpton's spokeswoman were not immediately returned. A spokesman for his attorney, Michael Hardy, referred inquiries to the spokeswoman.

Deputies arrested Jarrett Barton Maupin, 43, of Phoenix. Maupin told the officers he was hurrying to get Sharpton to the airport. Deputies impounded the rented 2005 Lincoln.

Williams said his officers offered Sharpton and the other, unidentified passengers a ride to a hotel across the highway, but they declined and walked there instead.

Maupin posted a total of $1,000 in bonds on charges of evading arrest with a vehicle and reckless driving.

This should be major news. Has it been on the cable News, yet? Why not? FOX News?

I don't know what your problem is, or what brought that on, I just posted some facts here about the arrest.

I don't think I've ever even posted to you before.

Ig it were up to me, I'd drive Ronald McDonald around town.....MUCH more handsome, and more of a message :)

When I first read this, I thought it was just the DRIVER. I can't believe Sharpton himself was in the thing! What was he doing to stop the illegal speeding? Or did he notice? Maybe he was too emaciated from his dieting. Perhaps he was holding a gun to his head.

I don't know what he has said anyplace else, but I don't see anything inappropriate in what Black Tooth said here.

Thank your very much.

Now had he been driving only 55 in the passing lane, then I really would have been pissed off at him.

Sharpy sitting in the back seat with a flask

Smoking crack or snorting coke is my guess. "Don't pull over till we finish all this."

The driver was an employee of the Rev's and unless he was kidnapping him, he was following his instructions. But somehow I don't think you want to get it, do you? :o)

No - I'm serious! This black Lincoln flew past us.....then a few miles later a Texas Officer pulled out onto I-35 with his lights flashing and sped ahead of us........in a short while we past the Officer with the black Lincoln pulled over. My husband commented on not being surprised that it was the Lincoln that that cop was after cause it was hauling butt!

I know that Serpent Dove was somewhere near us on the highway when this happened.....there were a bunch of other caravan vehicles, too...but I don't know if they were FReepers or not.

ZZZZZZZZZ.....and this is news because of what? We had no idea Al is like all other libs, thinks the law is for the leetle people?

It is worth noting, I agree. But no biggie. More of the usual from these people.

Too bad only the driver can be held responsible. Heh heh.

However, it's just typical of a lib to break the law and do it in such a way as to let an underling take the hit. SOP
