The suspect had no prior criminal convictions or outstanding arrest warrants. Nonetheless, police say that he drove right through a red light in Thuston County, Washington on Saturday. A sheriff's deputy tried to pull him over, but he wouldn't respond.

Police chased the man in his car through two counties for over an hour. Eventually, he crashed his car. That's when police arrested him. They asked the man why he ran. Well, it was something to do on a slow day. The News Tribune reports:

“He said he was just bored,” Odegaard said. “It looks like to us right now … he instigated this pursuit because he was bored and just wanted to do it.”
