VIDEO: TX Officers Pursue Stolen Dodge Hellcat Across 3 Counties

It's often said that suspects involved in police pursuits can't outrun the police because of radios and air support, but a suspect driving a reportedly stolen 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat tried to do just that last week in Texas.

Weaving in and out of lanes and riding on the shoulder to avoid other vehicles, the Hellcat reached speeds of well over 100 mph during the pursuit, which began in Houston and ended in Jefferson County.

The suspect Mohamed Abu-Shlieba abandoned the car and attempted to run away from police on foot through a field. Officers think it was because he ran out of gas. Not long after that, he was apprehended by local law enforcement, Jalopnik.com reports.

Marcus McLellan, with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, stated, “From the information that I gathered he had a number of warrants out for his arrest, felony warrants. He was under surveillance for being in possession of a stolen vehicle.”

No injuries were reported.

That's the only problem trying to run with a vehicle like that with 700 plus horsepower is that if you open it up you are going to use 3 to 4 times as much gasoline as the pursuing units. Most newer units now have 6 cylinder powerhouses that will run well over 100 mph but not use a third of the gasoline. Glad no officers or public were injured in the pursuit.

700 hp. I'd wave goodbye
