A man led officers on a highway chase that ended when he ditched the car and ran into the Clay County Courthouse - where he was already scheduled to appear.

An officer Wednesday was pursuing a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run when the suspect stopped the truck in the middle of the street and backed into the courthouse retaining wall, said Clay County Sheriff Andy Howe.

Then he ran into the courthouse and headed upstairs to the courtroom. http://www.azcentral.com/offbeat/art...aseend-ON.html
