SPOKANE, Wash. — Here's one the "Cops" producers might like.
A Spokane police officer chasing the driver of a stolen pickup saw his car — which was ferrying a crew from the TV show — engulfed in flames after he stopped in some dry grass to try to catch the suspect. The alleged car thief got away, only to be caught an hour later after stopping at a yard sale to buy a new shirt and swimming at Boulder Beach, where he was arrested.
