A suspected drug dealer in Chongqing who’d apparently watched one-too-many Fast & Furious films tried making an epic getaway by driving his Honda down a flight of stairs on Thursday. Unfortunately, it would only result in a series of lackluster events thereafter.
The driver, surnamed Hu, was reportedly being hunted down in the early hours of the morning by the police, Sina News reports.
As soon as Hu’s car was spotted, he drove even faster towards the police, and then tried driving down the stone staircase, near the Third Village of Dashiba in the city’s Jiangbei district, from a height of over four meters.
Unfortunately, for Hu, his car got stuck, leading to his immediate capture.
Upon the arrest, nearly three kilograms of drugs were seized. As if his reputation hadn’t already been tarnished by that less-than-thrilling getaway, the suspect then ratted on his two associates, who were subsequently arrested and are now awaiting trial.
