Las Vegan Patrick Gallegos was speeding 95 mph on the highway early Saturday morning. And a state police officer was chasing him.
But he said he had a good reason for going so fast: His wife, Candelaria, was having a baby.
The two of them had gone to Albuquerque on Friday to shop for Christmas presents. “My wife was walking around a lot that day,” he said.
They returned to Las Vegas around 11 p.m. and three hours later, Candelaria started having contractions.
