FAIL: Car chase suspect stops for gas and a stroll

(CBS/KCAL) Suspect Daniel Wachter led police on a bizarre, 3-hour car chase in which he stopped for gas, possibly smoked an illegal substance and tried to walk away from the police.

The chase began when officers were called to investigate a speeding car in San Dimas, Calif., and the driver failed to yield to emergency lights.

After his arrest, Wachter told KCAL's Greg Mills that he was returning his car to his mother.

When asked if he was on drugs, Wachter replied, "Just marijuana. No, no. I haven't smoked any today."
