Boone Police Department had an hour-long, 20 m.p.h. pursuit of a dude on a large tractor.

Someone stole the tractor and drove into town and started driving it toward people in a parking lot and then rammed a truck, and then rammed a dumpster and pushed it into a church building. Then our officers got there and the chase was on, as silly as the chase was.

They found a place that was isolated enough to do that, and put a couple rounds in his back tires to deflate them. It partially deflated them, but not fully, because we found out that sometimes farmers fill their back tires with liquid to create weight, so they're kind of self-sealing. But that got him to turn down the side road, almost into the middle of nowhere, away from the school. He got about, I don't know, 1,000 feet or so from the school. So we were happy to get him diverted.

The front wheels have gone flat. He's got one back tire that's getting really low. He turned on a private drive and there was a gate there, and that's when he decided to make a run for it
