3. Do you have a good chase story?

Not much of a chase cause I got pinched but was probably my last one...we went for panel mish around 3am and about 10-15min in and finishing up 2 d2d JJ yells that grassy's were comin through the gate. We hit the legs and ran whole length of the isle then as I was running back to the hole I heard someone yell oi! on other side of fence so I looked up and the grassy pepper sprayed me.

I dropped to the ground then the 2 fat grassy's chasing  me jumped all over me. Back to station got bail then went to catch train back to my car, hop on and see grassy's takin photos of the train I was on n realise it was our panels so I started bangin on the window n giving the scums the finger (never did get flicks though)....
