Father-Daughter Duo Arrested After 150mph Chase
Michael and Megan Bailey   (Johnson County Jail)

Father-daughter bonding is important. But not like this. Not like this! NBC DFW reports a 41-year-old man and his 19-year-old daughter were arrested after allegedly robbing a North Texas bank at gunpoint and leading police on a high-speed chase yesterday. Michael Bailey is suspected of robbing the bank then getting into a Hyundai where Megan Bailey was waiting in the passenger seat and speeding off, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The duo allegedly reached speeds of 150mph as they led police on a 30-mile chase through two counties. Eventually, father and daughter crashed into a pasture and were arrested. NBC reports the two were charged with aggravated robbery; Michael is facing an additional charge of evading arrest. (More weird crimes stories.)
