Slippery Characters

A man allegedly stole a 30-pack of beer from a convenience store in Tulsa, Okla., and the cop who responded was nice enough to tell him, “Just go back and pay for the beer.” But Christopher Springwater Nott, 25, wasn’t taking any favors. He got into his car and left. The ensuing “chase” was anything but high-speed: icy roads prevented any kind of fast getaway, but the suspect still crashed into a parked truck. Nott took off on foot, leaving his female companion behind. Both were captured. The suspects bragged that had it not been for the icy road conditions, they would have easily outrun the pursuing police car. Nott was charged with driving under the influence, six counts of failure to stop for a stop sign, and driving too fast for conditions. His passenger, Trina Renae Brown, 32, was charged with public intoxication. (JW/KOTV Tulsa) ...He brags about his driving, but the cop didn’t crash.
