A man who escaped arrest on Live PD for alleged reckless operation of his vehicle was taken into custody after viewers of the television show, in addition to the suspect’s “Crime Pays” forehead tattoo, assisted the police in tracking him down.

On November 30, Live PD aired an episode with a featurette which showed a suspect driving his vehicle down the road with the headlights turned off.

When the Terre Haute police began to pursue the car in an attempt to get the driver to pull to the side of the road, the suspect reportedly began to greatly increase the speed of the vehicle. Before the officers caught up to the man his car was shown veering off the road and slamming into a tree.

An off duty deputy allegedly spotted an elderly man driving down the Interstate while seated atop his vehicle’s open sunroof with his arms in the air.

Near 1:00 pm, the deputy began to record the seemingly carefree spirit with his cam. The man can be seen with arms extended to his sides while his hair blows in the wind from the momentum of the vehicle’s alleged speed, which was reported as 100 miles per hour.

When 911 was alerted by the deputy, Highway Patrol located a vehicle that they believed was the car being operated by the suspect.

An 11-year-old boy is facing legal consequences after he was accused of stealing his mother’s vehicle and leading the police on a high-speed chase because he was allegedly unhappy with his punishment after a dispute with her.

On the evening of October 4, Amber Eckert and her son reportedly got into a fight resulting in her taking possession of his Playstation gaming system. He was then sent to bed, and his mother turned in for the night as well.

After a little while, Eckert’s boyfriend woke her up and told her that it appeared that her car was missing, and he suspected that her son had taken it out on the road.

A man who formerly starred on a popular soap opera was allegedly intoxicated and helped by police officers when he was unable to order an Uber, but he was still charged with DUI when he did not take the Uber home and went to his vehicle instead.

On Sunday, May 20, 37-year-old Justin Torkildsen, a Daytime Emmy Award-winning actor who previously worked on The Young and the Restless was a patron in the St. Julien Hotel. While the Boulder, Colorado, native was there he reported that he had consumed four beverages resembling fruit punch and as he attempted to depart the staff believed he was intoxicated. They notified the Boulder Police for fear that it would be dangerous if Torkildsen attempted to drive in that condition.

Police arrived near 1:00 a.m. and they allegedly witnessed signs of inebriation in the way that Torkildsen was carrying himself.
