(NEWSER) – Daniel Pinedo-Velapatino was apparently so stressed out during a police chase last week he stopped at a stranger's house to play with her cats. The saga began when the 21-year-old allegedly stole $15,000 from a friend in Florida, and police later saw him hit a car at an intersection—while driving a stolen Lexus.
Police gave chase when he sped off and hit the highway to Boca Raton; he eventually ended up on a dead-end road, the Sun Sentinel reports. That's when police say he promptly crashed into a fire hydrant, hit an officer's car twice, then got stuck in mud. After breaking away from cops on foot, he ended up at Candace Noonan's back door, WPBF reports.
