Man Charged in High-Speed Police Chase Can Go to SuperBowl

According to, an Olympia man accused of driving a Ferrari while intoxicated in a downtown police chase that reached speeds of 100 mph is being allowed to leave Washington state to attend Sunday’s Super Bowl in New Jersey.

Shaun Goodman has pleaded not guilty to a charge of felony eluding and misdemeanor charges of DUI and hit and run in the December 29th chase.
Police say that the chase ended after Goodman crashed into several cars and a home before being cornered in a church parking lot. Homeowner Robin Rettew said it sounded like someone was racing up her driveway when she heard a series of crashes.

In a court petition, Goodman’s lawyer said his client had “what may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see his hometown team play in the Super Bowl.” The Olympian reports that Superior Court Judge James Dixon signed an order Thursday allowing Goodman to fly out Friday and return Monday. Under terms of his release on bail, Goodman is already required to wear an electronic monitoring device that measures whether a person has consumed alcohol. He will have to wear the device to the Super Bowl.
