It was a slow-speed chase for these Tennessee police.
A woman was pulled over by police for driving an electric mobility scooter on a highway. Sally Selby had allegedly stolen the scooter from Walmart to get coffee.
Police responded to a report of the woman driving in the slow lane on Highway 127 around 5 a.m. on Friday in Crossville, Tenn. The average top speed for most mobility scooters offered on Walmart’s website is a lightning-fast 4 mph
Selby told officers she took the cart to go get a cup of coffee at Waffle House, local ABC affiliate WKRN reported.
Cops reviewed surveillance footage from the store and saw Selby enter at 4:15 a.m. and use the scooter as she shopped. She left the store around 4:40 a.m. and cruised around the parking lot before exiting onto Highway 127.
Selby was arrested and charged with theft of property. A call to the Crossville Police Department by the Daily News for more information was not immediately returned.
