The reason for the Virginia Man police chase is straight out of science fiction

A driver’s reason for a 40-mile police chase in which speeds sometimes exceed 100 mph is straight out of a movie script.

Lee, who appeared in a Westmoreland County courtroom on Tuesday, said he stole a car for the prosecution because he was “tired of walking,” the newspaper reported. His explanation, however, did not end there.

“I thought I was a time traveler because I was on drugs. I wasn’t trying to hurt anyone,” Lee reportedly said.

“I was just trying to save my son.”

Police say officers chased him down the Pennsylvania Turnpike until he hit a strip of spikes laid across the highway.

He attempted to flee, but officers hit Lee with a Taser and then took him into custody, according to the police report.

The charges against Lee included aggravated assault with a vehicle, drunk driving, fleeing police and resisting arrest.

He faces up to 10 years in prison.
