A 60-year-old woman in Texas faces charges after leading Rockwall Police on a chase where she sped away from them in her tractor.
Laurie Bostic of Rockwall, Texas, outran three officers on her tractor while also being pursued by a squad car. Apparently, she was incensed when officers told her she and her tractor were not welcome into a local 4th of July parade.
A second video shows Bostic being arrested and placed in the squad car.
Bostic was then taken into custody and charged with evading arrest, a 3rd-degree felony.
She is also facing misdemeanor charges of interfering with a processional, disorderly conduct, and criminal mischief.
Folks were quick to comment on the discrepancy they saw between how this woman was treated, and how a similar interaction might have been handled by the police if the perpetrator was a black woman.
While this video is very entertaining, most folks reacted to its hidden implication that a white woman on a tractor would receive nothing more than a slap on the wrist. That same interaction would not have gone well otherwise.
But it is good to know that once can outrun the cops on a tractor.
