Crazy Mother Trucker Leads Cops on Wild Chase

4/28/2009 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In one the craziest police chases we've ever seen, a man just jacked a big rig and tore down Interstate 75 in Atlanta -- while the owner of the rig hung onto the back of the truck for dear life.

The owner eventually jumped off the back of the tractor-trailer -- eating serious pavement -- after spike strips were able to slow it down enough for the dramatic escape.

Atlanta police then surrounded the truck, busted out the windows and pulled the massive truck-jacker out -- who decided he wasn't done yet and fought the cops until they finally subdued him.

UPDATE: A Georgia State Patrol trooper was shot during the chase, according to AJC.com. His condition is currently unavailable.

There were so many cops around the stopped truck with their guns drawn, that if any 1 of them had fired a shot, he might have wounded one of his fellow officers. Plus a helicopter kept flying back and forth like a dog chasing a stick. When the alleged perpetrator was removed from the truck's cab, he was swarmed by so many officers, they had to draw straws over which part of him they could push on.

What drug was he on? Black folk don't need drugs, they are born un-evolved and just getting dumber till they get shot by their bruthas. Word up homeboy, you just got "slaved"

Just over an hour ago the CDC said there were 68 confirmed cases of swine flu in the US. Yet this reporter says there are hundreds of school children with it? Either that's a major cover up on the part of the CDC, or major propaganda by this reporter.

It is clear and obvious from the aforementioned that white people do not commit crimes. Dennis Klebold, Eric Harris, Jeffrey Dahmer at al;, were really blacks in white faces. The craigslist killer, is really a black man duh? Another example of typical white devils on TMZ. Nothing ever changes!
