Nation IN BRIEF : COLORADO : Gov. Romer Chased While in Police Car

October 03, 1994|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

An unmarked police car carrying Gov. Roy Romer was forced to speeds of up to 110 m.p.h. to elude two men who chased him for about 20 miles on a highway. Romer crouched down on the car's floor during the chase, which followed what campaign organizers described as a "strange" phone call earlier in the day from a person who wanted to know details of the governor's schedule. "There's no sense in being a target," Romer said. "It is bewildering. I've had lots of threats, you get those about once a week, but this is the first time I've been chased." Romer and his driver were able to get the car's license plate number. Authorities were searching for the men.
