In the US Virginia, a soldier of the National Guard was arrested, who flew at a speed range of 65 km / h from the military base of Fort Pickett on a stolen armored personnel carrier. The police pursued him for two hours and drove him into a corner in downtown Richmond.
Some eyewitnesses took the car for a tank. But the police stressed that there was no weapon on board the transporter.

The man still resisted the arrest, but the electric shock quickly calmed him. The soldier was taken to the hospital, where he most likely immediately goes to jail in anticipation of official charges and court.
