After a 10-minute, high-speed chase, Ferrell stops and is arrested along with her son.
There seems to be plenty of blame to go around here. In particular, the video raises questions regarding:
The judge, who described the video as "disturbing and puzzling," certainly has his head-scratching work cut out for him.
