Tesla police car runs out of electricity during high-speed chase

A policeman driving a Tesla patrol car almost ran out of power during a suspect chase in Fremont, California. The cop was driving a Tesla Model S during a high-speed chase when he noticed that it was running low on juice. He radioed in to dispatch to say he may need backup, soon after which he called off the chase. The suspects car was discovered abandoned in San Jose.

How is this a story? I'm sure cops have had to abandon the chase due to almost being out of gas before.

Electric cars are a silly idea. Nobody asked for them. Phones are bad enough to keep charged up!

So the only way electric cars will work is if everyone has one, and they all run out of power at the same time......but I guess if everyone has one, the police can just flip a switch and turn you car off, just like with a cashless system, do something wrong or think the wrong thing, no more car or money for you, what a brave future we're all heading too.
