Hey! I'm slowly sinking in a pond with water quickly filling my car! What a great time to smoke crack!

"NORTH PATCHOGUE, N.Y. (AP) - A police chase ended when a Long Island motorist drove into a backyard pond and tried to smoke a crack pipe just before his car sank, police said.

Officers tried to stop Yasyn Abdul-Mattin, 32, after seeing him driving erratically at about 12:16 a.m. Friday, Suffolk County Police said.

Instead of pulling over, Abdul-Mattin took off and went up a private driveway, continuing into a backyard pond, police said in a news release.

Police said Abdul-Mattin refused to get out of the car and tried to light a crack pipe instead. Just before the car sank, he climbed out a rear window that an officer had broken, police said.

Police said they were charging Abdul-Mattin, of Smithtown, with driving while impaired by drugs and several traffic violations."
