Woman Flees Police Because She ‘Wanted A Cheeseburger’ And We Totally Get It

Cape Coral Police

A woman was arrested in Cape Coral, Florida (of course) this week after refusing to stop when police attempted to pull her over.

Cape Coral Police Department stated that Tiara Crace, 24, was driving her SUV along Del Prado Boulevard North just after 3 a.m. when an officer witnessed her going 61 MPH in a 45 MPH zone. The officer then activated their lights and siren, but Crace did not pull over.

Rather than following Crace through the Coral Lakes neighborhood, they headed to the address on her vehicle registration and awaited her return.

After approximately 30 minutes, the officer witnessed Crace return with her vehicle then pull into her home’s driveway. She then attempted to run into the house but was stopped by the officer before she could do so.

The officer stated that Crace told her mother that she refused to stop for police because she wanted a cheeseburger.

Cape Coral Police Department posted dashcam footage of the arrest to YouTube.

Cheeseburgers are apparently involved in arrests surprisingly often.

A Fresno, California man refused to give up the cheeseburger he was eating after police confronted him at home regarding a road rage incident from earlier in the day.

25-year-old Moses Martinez had followed a woman, who had honked her car’s horn at him, to the local IRS building, where he had plowed his vehicle through two security gates before fleeing the scene.

Police found him shirtless and holding the burger.

Cheeseburgers have shown up in police reports several more times, as well. People really love their cheeseburgers!
