High Speed Police Chase Video Shows a Throwback Boise from 1999
It was a cold evening in the Treasure Valley and I had been inside of a police cruiser for several hours. No, I wasn't arrested--but we were taking a friendly ride-along with the Ada County Sheriff's Office that day. Everyone was on their best behavior--not even a speeding ticket was called for! Suddenly, everything changed when a stolen vehicle was identified and we were the lead car in a high speed pursuit in Meridian, Idaho. It was absolutely crazy.
The driver was wanted and eventually, he was arrested.
Of course, with growth here in the Treasure Valley has come a real uptick in crime since the year 1999. In fact, Boise has it's very own "Most Wanted" list that you can see, below:

Even now, high speed chases like the one that we got to ride-along with.
A crazy video has surfaced of a high speed chase that takes you through the streets of Boise in 1999, via a dashboard cam. There is a narrator (which is also funny to listen to) and so it must have been from some sort of televised police show at the time.
