In a move she must have known would delight Scooby-Doo fans around the world (or perhaps make them feel like she betrayed everything the gang stood for), a California woman named Sharon Kay Turman led cops on a high speed chase—in an excellent replica of the gang's "Mystery Machine." 

According to KRCTV, the Redding Police Department were looking for the 51-year-old in relation to a probation violation and tried to pull her over on a traffic stop when she took off. The chase reached speeds of over 100 mph, which is officially fast enough to knock the glasses off Velma.

Turman left the Mystery Machine when it was spotted by a California Highway Patrol helicopter and escaped on foot. She's still at large, wanted by the Redding Police Department and Shasta County Probation.

She got away with it, too, because there were no meddling kids.
