Personally I would have preferred the handling of the Camaro :-)

Glad no one was hurt.

Im watching at work with no volume, what happened? Did it run out of gas or spike strips?

Also.. I just have to wonder for those who run, where are they trying to go..I mean.. you're speeding through traffic but where are you going?

He got that that thing up to ONE HUNDRED MILES PER HOUR?!?!?!?

Oh, yeah... 100 MPH... the same speed my mom drives her 20- year- old minivan while texting and singing along to Carly Simon songs on the oldies station...

(I agree with previous posters that it's likely that it's not even a Hellcat... to a typical "journalist," any FCA product is probably a Hellcat. Heck, half of the people at work think I drive a Mustang.)

Read the article, the info is there. No sound required.

I'd blame the cops before the reporter, seeing as the article states "police said was in a stolen white Dodge Hellcat"

If the cop can't tell the difference, and the reporter doesn't care to double check the fine details (because those details are ultimately unimportant to the actual story) ... its not really a failure on the part of the reporter.

I've been misquoted by reporters more times than I can count. Even when they recorded me.

Contrary to what us car guys think, most of the world is clueless to car models.
