Movie Scenes III

Sheriff’s deputies in Milwaukee County, Wisc., were called to the scene of a crash. When they arrived the offending driver had already fled the scene. Minutes later, Bridgette Benavides slowed down to drive by the wreck, and a man — later identified as the crashed driver — ran up to her car and tried to get in. The doors were locked, so the man jumped onto the roof and started pounding on the sunroof. Benavides kept going, sometimes at freeway speeds, while a passenger called 911 for help. An officer raced after the car while the man kept trying to get inside, eventually smashing a side window. Benavides pulled over for the pursuing officer, who ordered the suspect to the ground at gunpoint. The unnamed 24-year-old man was charged with reckless driving, hit and run, operating while intoxicated, criminal damage to property, and recklessly endangering safety. (RC/Ozaukee Press) ...Nicholas Cage is a shoo-in for the role.
