“Never saw that before,” chortled the LAF spouse while watching WSB’s Thursday 6pm news. Tom Jones was covering a police chase / wreck in East Point. As such stories go, Jones had all the goods: An interview with a driver who’s car got whacked by a severed power pole; and an interview with the driver of the chased car. The driver was handcuffed in the back of a patrol car. Oddly, he was responsive to Jones’s questions. But he was unwilling to show his face, awkwardly crouching down. Jones’s photographer had only the option of shooting the driver’s ass while the suspect spoke.
Jones: You were running from police, though.
Driver’s ass: No.
Jones: How do you explain a light pole being down and people’s cars crashing?
Driver’s ass: What, a car got hit?
