Rev. Al Sharpton's driver accused of evading arrest

The Associated Press

WAXAHACHIE, Texas- A car carrying the Rev. Al Sharpton led sheriff's deputies on a nine-mile chase at speeds up to 110 mph before state troopers stopped the vehicle and arrested the driver, authorities said.

The civil rights activist called the sheriff's report "ludicrous" and accused the Ellis County officers of "embellishing the story."

"That nine-mile chase is news to me," Sharpton told The Associated Press. "All I know is that the police pulled us over because they wanted to talk to the driver about speeding."

Chief Deputy Charles Sullins said driver Jarrett B. Maupin, 43, was rushing Sharpton to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport after Sharpton visited anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan on Sunday at her camp outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford.

Because the 2005 Lincoln was rented to Maupin, of Phoenix, sheriff's deputies impounded the car. Maupin posted a $1,000 bond on charges of evading arrest with a vehicle and reckless driving, authorities said.

The car carrying Sharpton and two other passengers was clocked doing 110 mph in a 65 mph zone on the interstate south of Dallas, Sullins said.

He said the driver ignored deputies' attempts to stop it and weaved in and out of traffic before state troopers were able to get in front of the car.

Sharpton caught a lift from a passing driver and made his scheduled flight to New York.

Have any of you actually seen him speak or met him? He's 100% crazy. He gave a speach at my college when he was gonna run for president..my roommates and I went to see how loony he was...Boy did he prove us right...all he did was talk about how the "White man" holds down the "black man" and how the "Black man will have his day"...my Lord, I wanted to get up and run away, but I couldn't stop laughing! What a nut.

Of course he says that, while he is telling the driver not to stop. IT"S a SHAME that Sharpton thinks he speaks for the black community, just as Jesse jackson thinks he does while he strong arms companies to make money. They are no Martin luther King, who was someone to look up too if you were african American. No one should forget how Sharpton LIED and made up a story about a white on black rape, that's no one to look up too. How he stays in the lime light is a great question.
