Forbidden Hillcrest, the blog that’s a trove of digital delights, both historic and current, Friday night captured about six minutes of North Little Rock police radio traffic following the theft of a police vehicle and the ensuing chase on snowy roads.

Toward the end, the driver of the cop vehicle, before stopping, apparently asks on the radio of cops in pursuit, “Are you real police?” The chatter from pursuing cops is impressively calm.


UPDATE: Channel 4 adds some details. The man stole the car when an officer was trying to subdue him during an arrest.
