Sounds like it was in Florida (DeSoto county) too. Any idea who this is? :o :o

Hmmm http://www.vettetube.com doesn't work either. Looks like there are internal problems on that site.

Finally got to watch the video. It is scary and frankly, disgusting. Too bad the camera isn't a bit more steady but you can see the GS is all over (and off) the road. Amazing that no one was killed by this idiot.

The couple that filmed the video eventually called the Florida Highway Patrol. Probably saved his life. At the end of the video you can see where he was finally stopped by the cops, guns drawn and his hands up. Looked like he must have hit something as the right rear quarter panel appears ripped and there is damage to the left front left nose area and evidently the air bags went off, too.

I can only hope this is NOT a GSR Member. Driving like this is not a distinction one should be proud of. :(

I would like to know the true story on this. I have looked on line and come up empty. Quite possible the car was stolen I spose. Either way, dont understand why in the world he was driving directly into oncoming traffic.

This happened somewhere in DeSoto County, Florida on SR70. The GS does not appear to have a Florida tag but it is hard to tell. Perhaps I can check with some of the officers I know and find out some more info.
Does appear to be drunk but could also be a medical condition. I've run across that a few times on the job.

I'd say it was more like a MENTAL condition!

Really gang, this yahoo did not do us any favors. Just think of all those people who were following (carefully) behind him or those that had to swerve to avoid getting creamed by him. Everytime they see one of OUR Grand Sports on the road, they'll think of this idiot thereby making us all guilty by association. :(

Good point Hutch. People do tend to accuse by association.
Hopefully this guy got his a** busted and won't be behind the wheel of any car again.

I've checked with the LE guys in my area but without a tag# it's tough. And the fact the it's a couple counties from where I work doesn't help either. If I had more info I could get FHP guys to pull it up...maybe. :(
