Just the good ol' boys,
Never meanin' no harm,
Beats all you've ever saw,
been in trouble with the law
since the day they was born.
The late Waylon Jennings sang the lines above in the theme song from The Dukes of Hazzard. Now it seems we have a real life, dumb redneck boy story coming from the state of Kentucky, and reported by the Associated Press.
If you're going to commit a theft of goods and services, you'd think you wouldn't do it in front of the local cops, nor over $100 worth of food at Waffle House!
In a really weird occurrence at the Waffle House in Richmond, Kentucky, four young men from Lexington ran up the tab, when luck would have it, two girls got into a fight. When an employee of the restaurant flagged down the cops, who entered the Waffle House, these four braniacs ran out the door to avoid paying the bill. They tried to run over police officers, which began a high-speed chase at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. The chase came to a sudden halt when the driver hit a pole. The four tried to run from the scene, but were apprehended.
Now it's bad enough that these guys committed these acts, and they are charged with numerous counts, including reckless endangerment, driving under the influence of alcohol, and other charges. It is also bizarre that this started with two girls getting into a fight. But what really puzzles police is how the four men ran up a bill of $100, when the most expensive items on the menu don't top the $10 mark!
