What A Combo: Police Chase & Taco Bell

In what may be my favorite story of the day, police say a suspected cocaine dealerled them on a 90 mile per hour chase in Indiana, when he suddenly stopped at Taco Bell.

Jermaine Askia Cooper, 36, wasn't making a run for the border. Instead, Fort Wayne police say the suspect knew he would be going to jail and wanted to get "one last burrito".

Uh, as the commercial warns, "This is your brain on drugs."

Since we are a business network, I called Taco Bell for a statement. "We are cooperating with the police in their investigation and are pleased this criminal is behind bars," says Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch. "Needless to say, we chose not to cooperate with his request for one last burrito."
