Pope eventually reached 155 mph and was weaving in and out of traffic and braked several times without stopping, according to the report.
Out of nowhere, police said Pope braked abruptly near the Northridge Road exit and went from 150 to 0 mph in a matter of seconds.
Pope, who police said smelled of alcohol, told the officer he hadn’t heard the sirens or seen the blue lights.
Pope failed several field sobriety tests and was taken to jail on DUI, speeding, failure to maintain lane and expired tag charges, Channel 2 Action News reported.
