It is not always recommended to flee the police.
In Florida a person at the beach was suspected by the police to consume drugs und the suspect tried to escape. At the beach there is only one direction to escape – the open waters.
To escape the police, the suspect jumped into the water and swam towards the horizon. However, the suspect did not consider that there are fish in the ocean and many of them are big and hungry. A big fish, a shark, had already chosen the suspect as its next meal and followed him.
To rescue the suspect, the police distracted the shark with speedboats and got the suspect out of the waters. The try to escape the police was really unnecessary because the police always get their guy.
