On January 15, 2019 a trooper with the New Mexico Department of Public Safety conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle observed speeding through a school zone. Upon making contact with the driver, the trooper determined that his license was suspended. The driver was taken into custody and placed in the back seat of the trooper’s patrol car. At the same time, a second unit joined the trooper on the stop.
After some time, while the trooper was engaging in conversation with the arrestee, a sound caught his attention: the car he had stopped? It was starting. The trooper ran toward the car as it peeled out, and the backup unit on scene gave chase.
