Utah running. Like a freight train. Splashing through a

cross-alley. He doesn't break stride as he slams his

shoulder into a large, steel GARBAGE DUMPSTER.

DRIVING it like a football training sled into the ALLEY


THE SEDAN LOCKS 'EM UP seconds too late as it SKIDS and

SLAMS into it, CRUNCHING into the brick wall and--

Still alive -- GRINDS into reverse back down the alley,

HEADLIGHTS SMASHED, it guns it backward as--

UTAH leaps over the dumpster and sprints after the car.

He has a brick in his right hand. He cocks it back.

Johnny HEAVES the brick thirty yards and--

SMASH! The brick EXPLODES into the windshield,


Lady Pignose flinches from the glass fragments thrown into

her face.


Son of a bitch!

The car slews backward onto the street, slamming a parked

car. Lady Pignose slams the thing into DRIVE, cuts the

wheel hard, and punches it, skidding on wet pavement.

UTAH hurtles from the alley. He leaps, somehow TACKLES

the DRIVER'S door handle and is dragged along the street.

He pulls himself up, reaches inside the window, and whips

the steering wheel hard right.

The SEDAN fishtails into a parked Toyota. Utah bounces

forward, slamming into the asphalt. Glass shards and

crushed steel are strewn everywhere, as radiator steam

whistles hot.

Pig Nose #2, riding shotgun, is trapped. Can't get his

crushed door open. The DRIVER pushes open her door.

Gropes for her pistol. Utah springs -- no respect for a

lady. He slams the door, pins her arm and slams again and

again until the gun drops. Utah kicks it away as the

woman collapses in pain.

Pig Nose #1 bails out and runs across parking lot. Utah

leaps up onto the crushed hood and draws down with the



Halt. FBI!
