Deputies: Drunken driver chased pink limo


Published in Women's News

NAPLES, Fla. (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man driving a Porche was arrested on a drunken driving charge after chasing a pink limo carrying two women who took his money.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office said Thomas Richard Canham, 53, of Evanston, Ill., gave the women money early Tuesday after they said they would go to his house if he paid for them to use the Hummer limo for 2 more hours, the Naples (Fla.) Daily News reported Friday.

Deputies said Canham gave chase when the women took off with his money and cut the limo off at Strada Place in North Naples. Canham then got out of the car and demanded his money back, the deputies said.


The confrontation gained the attention of a patrolling deputy, who saw Canham drive off after receiving a "handful of money" from one of the women.

The deputy pulled Canham over and reported he smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes. He was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence.
