MIAMI — Dozens of heavily armed police officers surrounded a hijacked mail truck after a 90-minute slow-speed chase through the city's streets Friday.

The chase began after witnesses reported seeing an armed man jump into the truck, police said. Television station WFOR-TV reported that a female mail carrier was being held at gunpoint, and a television helicopter shot showed two guns in a mail bin on the passenger's seat.

Fox News just had an eyewitness, a Reverend that apparently gave his cell phone to the postal truck lady.

My wife watched this for almost 3 hours and I saw the end of it after the Blair/Bush press conference - we expected to see some wild-eyed guy ranting about world politics be dragged out, instead this very ordinary looking man was led quietly away wearing a short-sleeved shirt and walking shorts.
