Car thief calls 9-1-1 to tell police to stop chasing him

If you want to get the police to stop chasing you, calling them and telling them to back off won’t work, FYI.

According to Chron, a suspect led cops on a wild car chase in a stolen Honda, before crashing it into another vehicle and taking off on foot. Somehow the suspect evaded police, but at one point during the car chase, a helicopter had eyes on the suspect — so the suspect hatched a plan to get them off his tail… by dialing 9-1-1.

CHP Sgt. John Koven said the thief demanded the aircraft stop following him and “made a few statements to our dispatch and related that he wasn’t going back to jail.”

Apparently it worked because the suspect is still on the loose.
