This dude might be a knucklehead, but he has the heart of Formula One’s Ayrton Senna. Observers spotted him Sunday gunning a go-cart in Oakland like he just stole it from the county fair, a police officer in hot but (at least in this footage) futile pursuit.
Twitter user Tonka Boy Dre, who posted these wonderful videos, says the rider was part of a bigger group who happened to fall behind. This “particular person on the go kart was the slowest and the last in the pack and that's why he was being chased by police,” he writes. Responses to T. Dre’s footage so far include “Life goals,” “Mario kart,” and “this is how we do it in the Town.”
