Road rage times 10
Jerold Baker led cops on a high-speed chase down Virginia Street Friday after sparking what police characterize as the city’s worst-ever case of road rage.
Baker, who was born with 10 middle fingers, simultaneously insulted every commuter on the onramp to Interstate 80 West before speeding off down the freeway.
Turning onto the Virginia Street offramp, he headed downtown, where police began pursuit at Fifth Street. At times, the chase reached 10 mph before he was stopped on the Virginia Street Bridge.
“It was the dangdest thing,” said Sgt. Mike Williams. “It felt a little creepy just putting the cuffs on him.”
