We were lucky to get out alive! How this place stays in business I'll never know? We woke up in this motel (sic.), that we hope is waiting to be closed by the health department. It is a filth trap, and we were getting ready to go to the INDY 500. While I was getting ready in the bathroom, we had the room door open and we were on the second floor. A black man all bloody all over his head came right in the room and wanted to use the phone. He tried to light up a cigarette, and I said let's go outside and smoke. This is a no smoking room, (quick thinking on my part!). Anyways, someone had called the police down the way when he was there before us trying to get into another room. A police car pulled up, and he ran, and then rolled down the stairs as he also tripped going down. He then ran across the parking lot, over a six foot chain link fence, with the officer in hot pursuit. He then ran across a 6 lane interstate before being arrested across the highway at another hotel. Well, it turns out he hit a car head on infront of this motel, leaving 3 unconsious people there to be extricated! The desk clerk never came out to render aid! He hit them so hard that his steering wheel was bent from the impact with his head!
After the news helicopter, the police and fire department left...so did we! I never did like the COPS show episodes, let alone being in one!
