Week In Photos: Cocaine Derby, Opium in Flames, Tornado, More

Dussen, Netherlands, June 22, 2007—Crop circles on crack? No, just a car driver on coke.

A panicking driver high on cocaine led several police cars and a helicopter on a chase through a rural area in the Netherlands.

After knocking over two apple trees and ramming a metal fence, he zigzagged through a grain field before being caught, local police said.

The damage was estimated at 7,000 to 8,000 euros (US$9,423 to $10,769), the Reuters news agency reported.
