Police say 38-year-old Lucas Sosa was drag racing his blue 2013 Ford F-150 against another pickup truck on Antioch Pike on June 18th, but the observing officer was too far back in traffic to conduct a traffic stop initially. Both trucks were caught by a red light traffic signal a short time later, and the officer was able to catch up and observed them drag racing a second time. The other vehicle slowed down and ceased racing; however, Sosa continued speeding through traffic and weaving around other vehicles until he was stopped.
