Ex-NASCAR driver in the pits after cops chase him through 3 states2/1/2013
Tyler Walker didn't fare particularly well during his on-and-off NASCAR career back several years ago, and now his driving cred has taken another hit. The 33-year-old racer was arrested after reportedly leading cops on a high-speed chase through Nevada, Arizona and Utah, and he and his passenger have since been hit with a bundle of drug and alcohol charges. Even after the tires on his BMW were flattened by a spike strip, Walker and his companion tried to flee on foot, but they were subdued by Utah troopers and eventually booked into — get this — the Purgatory Correctional Facility. NASCAR suspended Walker in 2007 for a drug policy violation, but he was racing bush-track sprint car races as recently as last summer. [Source]
