Tom Cruise Led High Speed Car Chase Through the West Side of ManhattanS

Just two days after his daughter Suri and ex-wife Katie Holmes were involved in a minor accident, Tom Cruise, with Suri in tow, ran red lights and sped through Manhattan in an attempt to outrun paparazzi. The chase, which lasted 20 minutes, included ten cars full of paparazzi, plus six stragglers on bikes, all of whom also ran the red lights.

The New York Daily News reports that Cruise exceeded local speed limits:

The SUV hit 40 to 45 mph on 10th Ave., where the speed limit is 25 mph, and 55 to 65 on the West Side Highway, where the limit is 40 mph.

Cruise and Suri ended up at a nearby helipad, where they boarded a helicopter that headed towards New Jersey.

No accidents or arrests were reported, but one paparazzi-filled van was pulled over by police at 10th Avenue.
