Hey, the good thing about getting into a shootout with a stormtrooper is you know they'll miss.

The California Highway Patrol tried to pull over a Ford Mustang for speeding on Sunday night, but the driver sped off. He wound up pulling over on a side street and he and his passenger ran away on foot, but the cops quickly tracked them down.

There was still a guy in the backseat of the car, though. The cops repeatedly told him to come out, but he wouldn't move.
