Escape FAIL!

Running from the cops isn't a great idea, but running from the cops while you're this uncoordinated can have dire consequences:
A tip to the state's DrunkBuster hot line Sunday afternoon alerted authorities to a possibly drunken driver.

State Police Officer Grace Romero spotted the man's pickup truck swerving across both lanes of a highway, driving slowly and then fast. He refused to stop.

After narrowly missing other vehicles, police said the suspect drove through a ditch and a barbed-wire fence before stopping. He tried to put the truck into park, but it ended up in reverse.

Police said the man fell from his open door and both of his legs were run over by the front driver's side tire.
He was treated at a hospital for "minor injuries." Normally, you would consider that pretty lucky, but since the injuries weren't more serious, they were able to book him into jail right away.
