I would assume if you're stealing a vehicle and you know there's a chance you could get into a police chase, you'd try to steal the fastest one you could find.
This guy stole the slowest. A 33-year-old guy named Travis Campbell from New Orleans stole a STEAMROLLER from a construction site where he used to work last week. The cops started chasing him, so Travis gunned the steamroller up to its top speed . . . eight miles-per-hour. Shockingly, the cops were able to catch up with him and he was arrested for theft.
