Dukes Of Hazard Style Stolen Car Chase Ends in Montana
Just the good ol' boys
Never meanin' no harm
Beats all you never saw
Been in trouble with the law
Since the day they was bornStaightenin' the curves
Flattenin' the hills
Someday the mountain might get 'em
But the law never will
Well, it looks like the mountain finally got them Duke boys.
The confederate flag has been in the news again lately. Just this last week NASCAR banned the confederate flag from being flown at NASCAR events. That's bad news for the Dukes of Hazard. With this announcement from NASCAR, odds are the Dukes are going to have to re-paint their Dodge Charger. It would also be wise to change the name to something other than a confederate general. While General Lee statues are being torn down all over the southern US, a 1969 Dodge Charger General Lee was stolen and wrecked here in the Rockies.
According to motorious.com
At around 5 a.m. on Saturday, June 13, a 1970 Dodge Super Bee and a 1969 Dodge Charger General Lee replica were stolen from a couple in Mullan, Idaho, and within hours, both cars had been involved in separate chases with the police. Fortunately, both cars have been recovered after suffering minor damage.
The 2 classic cars were stolen and then involved in what would appear to be a Dukes of Hazard style police chase. The chase eventually came to an end, when the Charger crossed into Montana and crashed into a tree.
Both drivers were arrested and it appears minor damage was inflicted on the Charger. The police are still looking for a possible third suspect.
