    CRAWFORD, Texas — A driver for the Rev. Al Sharpton led Ellis County Sheriff's deputies on a nine-mile chase at speeds up to 110 mph before state troopers stopped the car, authorities said.

    The driver was rushing Sharpton to the airport after his visit anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan on Sunday at her camp outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford.

    The car carrying Sharpton and two other passengers was clocked doing 110 mph in a 65 mph zone on Interstate 35 in Ellis County in North Texas, said Lt. Danny Williams.

    The car ignored deputies' attempts to stop it and continued speeding and weaving in and out of traffic before it was stopped, Williams said.

    Calls Monday to Sharpton's spokeswoman were not immediately returned. A spokesman for his attorney, Michael Hardy, referred inquiries to the spokeswoman.

    Deputies arrested Jarrett Barton Maupin, 43, of Phoenix. Maupin told the officers he was hurrying to get Sharpton to the airport. Deputies impounded the rented 2005 Lincoln.

    Williams said his officers offered Sharpton and the other, unidentified passengers a ride to a hotel across the highway, but they declined and walked there instead.

    Maupin posted a total of $1,000 in bonds on charges of evading arrest with a vehicle and reckless driving.

    Maybe he realized what a mistake it was to be seen supporting CS and just wanted to get the hell out of there.

    HEHEHE---Law officers of every shape and form were out there pulling people over to take advantage of the traffic. I'm glad the Greaser was among the many I saw pulled over.

    Clearly, a hate crime has been committed by Texas law enforcement. Alberto Gonzales, where are you? How dare they pull over such a prominent civil rights leader.

    I guess the Rodney King video is still fresh in his mind. :)
