You don't need to be a video game expert to know what GTA is. The long-standing video game franchise has, for years, been the game of cops and robbers. Players can run around a city in a real-life simulation--be law abiding citizens or more often than not, cause some problems, steal some cars, and get chased by police officers. Oh, the thrill.
As popular as the video game might be, there's nothing fun about being chased by police in real life. There's nothing safe about it, either, and we have to hope that doing so is not a goal of anyone's by any means.
Just last week, we shared a post of Idaho's "Most Wanted" and a Treasure Valley resident sent us this video, from a few months ago. The video, shot by a Boise resident, captures what looks like a scene out of GTA on the streets of Boise! This police chase took place on Overland, between Vista and Federal Way.
Let's break down the play-by-play and check out the full video for yourself, BELOW:

This is not the first time a local police chase has been caught on video. You may recall that not long ago, in the spring, a very dramatic chase came to an end near Bishop Kelly High School. Guns were drawn and several police cars swarmed the trapped vehicle.
