Man leads police on high-speed chase in stolen street sweeper
Police in Hillsboro, Oregon, chased a man over 10 miles on a stolen street sweeper Sunday morning, Hillsboro Patch reports.
Tyler Haguewood, 33, is charged with reckless driving, attempting to elude and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in the chase where speeds reached 65 mph.
KGW-TV reports a contractor was cleaning the WinCo Foods parking lot in Hillsboro. The driver left the sweeper to use a handheld blower when Haguewood jumped in and drove off.

Haguewood was taken into custody and booked into the Washington County Jail, the Oregonian reports.
