Officials say when the husband (above, right) saw the
responding officer arrive, Coslett put the 2006 Chevy Silverado in gear

According to investigators, the couple led Slidell cops on a high-speed
chase across the city, “while throwing suspected methamphetamine and
marijuana out of the vehicle.”
An off-duty officer on Shorcut Highway heard the pursuit over his police
radio and pulled over in case the chase came his way, deploying his
spike strips. Police say the suspects’ vehicle came to a stop after
running over the tire-deflation devices, and the couple was arrested.
