Keith Booker, was driving a gray Mercedes. After Booker allegedly ran a stop sign, Tampa police activated their emergency lights and tried to pull Booker over. But instead of pulling over, police said Booker turned off his headlights and kept speeding. The officers said they backed off, as department chase policy stipulated the offense wasn't serious enough.
