A 29-year-old man was on drugs when he drove a stolen armored military vehicle through the streets of Richmond, leading law enforcement on a chase, police said.
According to Virginia State Police spokesperson Corrine Geller, "The Virginia State Police began pursuit of the vehicle since receiving the initial report and traveled along with it from Nottoway County to the City of Richmond".
The armored vehicle was driven at a maximum speed of about 40 miles per hour, according to State Police.
Despite local outlets identifying the vehicle as a tank, Gizmodo reported it actually "appears to be an M577, a vehicle designed for use as a mobile command post by military officers or other support roles".
The tank-like vehicle exited interstate 95 at close to 9:30 p.m. on the Boulevard exit in Richmond.Читайте также: Jeep Renegade revealed with a more mature, aggressive look
The wildly successful Grand Theft Auto series is an open-world video game in which players create mayhem across an urban landscape, stealing vehicles and committing crimes.
Witnesses sent in video of the armored vehicle racing down Broad Street in Richmond as police gave chase. He is being held in Richmond City Jail, officials said.
The Virginia National Guard said in a news release that Yabut is assigned as the commander of the Petersburg-based Headquarters Company, 276th Engineer Battalion.
In shocking scenes that mirror the video game, the huge vehicle was filmed as it rolled through Richmond, in the USA state of Virginia.
The Virginia Army National Guard base is situated in Fort Pickett.
Williams said the Guard has started an internal investigation and "will determine appropriate actions once the investigation is complete".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
