High Dutch driver spurs police chase in cornfield
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch farmer watched in disbelief as a driver under the influence of cocaine drove a slalom course through his corn field, only to be joined by two police vehicles in hot pursuit, adding to the damage.
Police, backed up by a helicopter, eventually managed to corner the 35-year-old driver after he careered into a neighboring orchard and crashed into a ditch.
"Shoot out two tires... then the problem is solved," irate farmer Ad van Schendel told police, according to the Brabants Dagblad newspaper.
Van Schendel said he estimated the damage to his field near the southern town of Dussen last Friday at 7,000-8,000 euros.
