    LETS GIVE CREDIT TO WHERE CREDIT IS DUE, THE DURHAM COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE WERE THE ONES WHO STUCK WITH THE CHASE AND CAUGHT THE SUSPECTS AFTER THEY TRIED TO JUMP OUT ON FOOT. AND ON THE OTHER HAND WITH ALL THE CHARGES SHE ONLY GOT A 3000.00 BOND, SHE WAS OUT BEFORE THE OFFICER WAS DONE WITH HIS PAPER WORK.$ TALK ABOUT THE REVOLVING DOOR.

    Why didnt she just stop and then she would have only been charged with driving with a revoked license? Why make matters worse? It doesnt make any sense.
