High Speed Chase

Livingston Sheriff’s Department reports a high-speed chase early Thursday morning that wended its way through Dansville and Mount Morris.
The driver, 29-year-old Brock Hyde of Sparta, allegedly led police on a chase over one-hundred miles per hour.

What police didn’t know, is that Hyde was driving his girlfriend’s car. And that’s where it gets interesting. During the chase, police say Brock Hyde called his girlfriend, Monica Sims – and asked her to call 9-1-1 and report the car stolen!
The plan was for Hyde to elude police in the chase – and then later claim it wasn’t him driving the car, it was stolen!

Well, the plan didn’t work out very well. Hyde was caught. He’s charged with Reckless Endangerment, Resisting Arrest, and more. He’s jailed.
And his girlfriend? She’s charged too. Both are due in court at a later date.
