Bay News 9 has a brief write up about recent events in Tampa that sound like a great Lethal Weapon montage scene…

Two seperate police pursuits in Tampa with two stolen vehicles equal four grand theft auto arrests yesterday.

Per police reports, four theft suspects were seen stealing a Lexus in South Tampa. Police attempted to stop the suspects but they fled with the police in pursuit.

At the same time a Jeep that was stolen out of St. Petersburg ended up along Adamo drive in Hillsborough.

Facing hot pursuit, the Lexus crashed near 34th and Adamo. Moments later, the jeep had a roll over on 50th and Adamo!

The final kicker? As police were still securing the scene an unrelated driver, in a work truck, crashed into a cruiser as he was distracted by the lights. The man was found to be intoxicated and was arrested for DUI.

Besides the aforementioned driving under the influence, police also charged four of the men with auto theft and the two drivers with fleeing and eluding as well as multiple traffic infractions.

As of this writing, one theft suspect is in the hospital and three others remain in jail.
