Hungry fugitive stops at In-N-Out drive thru during police chase

It’s hard to imagine what goes through your head when police cars and helicopters are chasing you. But it seems that a good number of fugitive motorists—like the guys in L.A. who did donuts and stopped for selfies with bystanders—basically just think, “better enjoy my freedom while it lasts.”

That and a craving for a juicy double-double could explain the actions of a wayward pickup truck driver pursued by police Wednesday night in Arizona. Rather than put the pedal to the metal and outrun authorities, he elected to swing by an In-N-Out drive thru. Honestly? Same as hell.

In the video above we can see that the guy did lean out of his window and almost certainly attempted to order food, or at least a milkshake, at the In-n-Out intercom. Sadly, when he gets to the pickup window, it’s no dice. Most likely the police alerted employees to the (possibly armed) suspect, which foiled his quest for animal-style fries. In the end, he took off empty-handed and empty-bellied, ultimately surrendering to police after abandoning his truck a short foot chase through someone’s backyard.

On the plus side, the first In-N-Out burger he eats once he’s out of prison is going to taste that much better.
