Video: NM police chase driver around horse track

Man, 28, broke through a gate at a casino

Hobbs, N.M. — It wasn't an average call that the Hobbs Police Department responded to. "Nothing like this has happened. The casino's been open for several years and we've never had this type of issue out there before," said Officer Mike Stone of the New Mexico Police Department.

Police say 28-year-old Martin McDonald of Texas broke through a gate at the Zia Park Casino and drove his pickup onto its horse race track.  But it would be a while after they spotted him before police would speak with McDonald.

Officers tried to pull over his pickup truck on the dark track, but he ignored their lights and sirens.  By the time police were called, the security guard had told them McDonald had driven several laps around the track at a high rate of speed and by the time police got there, he wasn't stopping.
