Biker Starts Crying When He's Caught Doing 183mph By Traffic Police
A biker who ended up in a police chase was caught doing 183mph but started crying when the cop arrested him.
Senior Airman Michael Workman, 24, had the quick realisation that he'd probably just sacrificed his career and potentially even his freedom when he tried to outrun a law enforcement officer for doing 80mph in a 70mph zone.
Workman had set out with two of his mates to go on a high speed ride down Interstate 35 in Oklahoma on 25 April, when they were spotted breaking the limit by 10mph.
If he'd have stopped, the officer pointed out he probably would've just got a ticket, but he decided to try to get away and reached speeds of 183mph as they weaved in and out of traffic, while being chased by Oklahoma State Highway Trooper Walter Jack.
Clearly to the regret of Workman, Jack kept up and boxed the speeder's red Honda in after Workman got slowed down by traffic.

Jack's dashcam recorded the whole thing, with the trooper shouting at him, calling him 'stupid' and telling him he could have killed himself.
Having been a danger to himself, the police officer and the public, the telling off was too much for Workman, who started to apologised. Handcuffed, he was put into the police car and he can be seen starting to sob as he realises he's probably just made a life-changing decision.
Jack piles on the pain and goes for the guilt trip card, telling him he'd have only received a ticket if he'd have just stopped earlier, then says: "Now you got to listen to my terrible music. Hang tight."
The video, which was originally shared by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, was picked up by the Military Times newspaper.
Workman, who is based at nearby Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma, is facing charges including endangering others and eluding a police officer. He could get up to a five year jail term or be fined up to $5000.
One of the friends he was with sped off but has not been named. It's thought he's facing the same charges after being apprehended by police later.
The third of the friends stopped when first asked to by Trooper Jack. He has been fined, with all three airmen having their bikes impounded - but it's not thought he faces any further charges.
