A 33-year-old Detroit man has been arraigned on multiple charges after fulfilling his “bucket list” item of running from the police, according to officials.

Kurtis Kahiel Law allegedly was driving recklessly around 1:30 a.m. near Interstate 96 and Greenfield on Detroit’s west side when Michigan State Police attempted to pull him over in a 2014 Dodge Challenger, state police said.

But Law had a different idea.

He allegedly failed to stop and police gave chase. Not long after, he lost control of his vehicle and went up a curb.

Law eventually stopped in the area of Glastonbury and Wadsworth, officials said. State police took him into custody without incident.

Troopers said they asked the Law why he tried to run.

“Running from the cops was on my bucket list,” the man allegedly said, according to police.

With that dream fulfilled, state police took the man to the Detroit Detention Center.

Law was arraigned on charges of third-degree fleeing to elude, resisting and obstructing a police officer, possession of marijuana, and a second offense of driving with a suspended license. He also was also given a habitual offender fourth notice.
