Know that bit they used to do on "Saturday Night Live," where they’d mention something completely idiotic someone had pulled off, followed by a disbelieving really?
They need to bring it back for Dodgers infielder Justin Sellers, whose alleged escapade Saturday is of the head-shaking, you’ve-got-to-be-pulling-my-chain variety.
Sellers, who had back surgery last season, was arrested in West Sacramento on Saturday on suspicion of reckless driving and evading police.
The reckless driving occurred on an off-road motorcycle in a residential neighborhood, where Sellers was allegedly popping wheelies. West Sacramento Lt. Tod Sockman told The Times’ Dylan Hernandez that neighbors had complained about someone driving recklessly multiple times previously, but he had escaped police by driving into a nearby wooded area.
Hey, that’s always a great idea! Running from police! What could possibly go wrong?
Sellers, apparently channeling his inner Steve McQueen, allegedly took off once again for the woods Saturday. This time a seemingly irritated local police were ready. They set up a perimeter in the area, trapping the suspect.
