A 2017 McLaren 720S supercar hitting 155 mph on a Georgia highway couldn't outrun a woman cop who chased the driver in her Dodge Charger Pursuit cruiser, The Drive reported.

After Dwayne Pope was pulled over he had glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol, according to an Alpharetta police report. He failed a sobriety test and was arrested for DUI, speeding, failing to maintain lane and driving with an expired tag.

The chase began around 3 a.m. on Sunday morning when Pope’s high-performance British sports car sped past the police officer on Georgia State Route 400, clocking speeds of about 155 mph.

The police officer attempted to pull the vehicle over, according to an Alpharetta Department of Public Safety incident report.

When this proved unsuccessful, she gave chase.

A separate incident report cited by The Patch noted that the vehicle failed to stay in its lane and would "straddle the boundary line that divided two lanes of travel.”

The officer further noted, per The Patch, that the vehicle was “changing lanes without using a turn signal and weaving in and out of the traffic that it was passing.”

The officer pushed her car to 143 mph and managed to maintain visual contact with the McLaren for several miles before the driver slammed on brakes.

“That car came to such a sudden stop that there was smoke coming from the brakes,” said Alpharetta Police spokesman Jason Muenzer, according to WSB- TV. “This could have been extremely bad, not only for himself, but also for the family out there driving, who’s trying to get home.”
