ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. -- A Volkswagen beetle owned by the Carter County Sheriff's Department became an improvised pursuit vehicle – at about 20 mph. The beetle won.

Deciding the women behind the wheel showed no signs of stopping for a red light, Watson went around her and braked, expecting to sacrifice the beetle, but the truck stopped inches off the back bumper.

Driver Cynthia Ann Andes of Hampton said she drank half a liter of vodka and took prescription pain pills.
