Police Chase Ends in Arrest Even Though Suspect Claims He Was "On Base"

When you're playing baseball, you can't be tagged out if you're on base, right? I think that's the rule. But the umpire wasn't paying attention during this impromptu game in South Carolina.

Police in Fort Mill tried to pull over a driver who was weaving in traffic. He refused to stop, which resulted in a car chase. It ended at the suspect's home. He got out of his car and went to his house, apparently thinking that the crisis was over:

The driver then reportedly disobeyed instructions to stay in the car and instead started walking toward his home’s front door. When told he was under arrest, Lafferty said, “You can’t, I’m on base,” and reached out with his hands to the side of the house. [...]

Lafferty reportedly struggled with deputies when they attempted to handcuff him and “continued to state that he was at his house and could not be arrested,” according to the report.

Surprisingly, alcohol was involved.

Because nothing bad happens to white people. We all eat caviar and $hit money. There's never any violence against whites by blacks either, because that would be racist, and we all know blacks would never do such a thing.

I don't want to be the one to say this, but nobody else has yet. Lafferty is obviously white, since, after the stuff he did, he's still alive with no reported major injury.
