Residents of Hennepin, Minnesota, know that a DWI charge carries serious consequences, and multiple charges bring more severe sentencing. It's not surprising drivers want to avoid such issues, but running from police or the scene of an accident can be a dangerous choice that increases the impact of potential charges. One man claims he didn't run from police after officers saw him speeding on a local highway. Instead, he states he was rushing his father to a hospital, insisting that he thought his father was having a heart attack.
Authorities say they didn't believe the man's story and arrested him for speeding. According to police, the man drove as fast as 90 mph on a road where the maximum speed limit is 60 mph. The incident took place early in the morning on April 3.
