Ain't nobody got time for jail. That's what 41-year-old Susie Thomas thought out loud when a cop tried to pull her over for run a red light while talking on her cell phone in Sumter, South Carolina. Susie led police on a 10-minute chase that topped 100 mph all the while her unrestrained 4-year-old granddaughter was in the back seat. Cops eventually caught her and arrested her. She told police she ran because she had outstanding warrants. She has warrants in three counties for forgery and counterfeiting. In fact, she spent 14 months in prison on forgery charges.

She was charged with running a red light, reckless driving, child endangerment, and driving with a suspended license.
