Low Speed Go-Cart Chase Ends in Arrest

St. Paul, Minnesota police spotted Say Hai cruising through the downtown area, and decided to pull him over. Hai wasn't having it, though, and so began a Neatorama-worthy chase into the night. The 19-year-old blew through red lights, crossed into incoming traffic lanes, and even after four squad cars corralled him into a parking lot, he continued to attempt escape.
There was a chain blocking one end of the parking lot — 1 1/2 to 2 feet off the ground — and Hai tried to go under it, but "he was clotheslined in the neck area by the chain," [police spokesman Andy] Skoogman said. "He was able to stay on the cart."

At that point, an officer got out of his car, ran up to Hai and yelled at him to stop. Still the man refused. "The officer says the driver accelerated toward him," Skoogman said. "He pointed a Taser at him and again yelled at him to stop."

It took three taser shots to subdue the man, whose name, once again, was Say Hai.
