The Random Pixels Losers Corner welcomes...

Luther Henry

....37 year-old career criminal, Luther Henry.

At rush hour Thursday evening, Henry led police on a high speed chase south on I-95.

The wild pursuit started shortly before 6pm and was quickly picked up by local news choppers, thus guaranteeing Henry a spot on every evening news show in South Florida. And that was his undoing.

And it lands him squarely, in this, the first installment of the Random Pixels Losers Corner.

From NBC Miami:
The lead-footed suspect who led a chase down I-95 discarded cocaine as he fled authorities on foot when he reached Downtown Miami, Miami-Dade Police spokesman Roy Rutland said.

Rutland said even more cocaine was found in 37-year-old Luther Henry's socks after he was taken into custody.

The incident unfolded after 5 p.m. when police responded to Henry reportedly driving a white car erratically in the area of NW 68th Street and 19th Avenue.

Henry tried to hit at least one officer with the vehicle, authorities say, causing pursuit as he drove off.

Henry then drove north toward Opa Locka before heading south on I-95, with what appeared to be marked and unmarked police cars initially in pursuit.

Police vehicles dropped back as media helicopters pursued the vehicle on the Interstate.

Henry bailed out of his car near NW 5th Street and 7th Avenue, fleeing on foot about 6:13 p.m. through a back door into an apartment with a woman and little girl inside. He discarded the drugs on the way, Rutland said.

City of Miami police had been monitoring the live feed from the choppers and went to the front door of the apartment, guns drawn.
Henry faces a laundry list of charges including, assault on a police officer, fleeing a police officer, possession of cocaine and marijuana, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.
