Wisconsin Woman Blames High-Speed Chase On Her Doppelgänger
Occam's razor says that the simplest explanation is almost always the right one. This woman does not believe in Occam's razor.
Police in Waukesha, Wisconsin got into a high-speed chase with a woman last week, where she was going 85 miles-an-hour through construction zones. She actually got away, but then she ditched the car and ran.
The cops found a cell phone in the car belonging to 37-year-old Dianna Warchol. They also found a receipt from Walgreens, and they reviewed the security footage from the store and saw a woman who looked like Dianna.
But when they went to her house, Dianna said it wasn't her. Yes, she'd driven the car to Walgreens. Yes, she'd left her cell phone in there. No, she wasn't driving in the chase.
Dianna said someone who looks exactly like her must've stolen the car and gotten into a chase with the cops. She said it happens to her all the time, people always get her mixed up with other women.
For some reason, the cops didn't buy her doppelgänger car thief theory and Dianna was arrested and charged with attempting to flee and driving with a suspended license. She could get up to three-and-a-half years in prison.
