A man in Iowa led police on a chase after refusing to pull over for a traffic stop. He said he wanted to be chased because it was a goal on his "bucket list." Now he faces multiple charges.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A driver in Des Moines got what he always wanted. Police tried to pull the man over on I-80. His car had an expired registration. But he refused to stop and led the officers on a chase. It ended with a police car nudged his vehicle, a maneuver to put him into a tailspin. Once he was stopped, the man told police he led them on that chase because, it was on my bucket list. Hopefully, an arrest for drunk driving was on the list because he got that, too. It's MORNING EDITION.
