After being denied to board the plane for her flight from Orlando to New York, the apparently intoxicated woman decided to use her US$1,500 motorized suitcase to evade a police officer who was surprised about the speed of the drivable piece of luggage.

Electromobility can come in many different types and forms these days. Besides popular EV categories like scooters and even all-electric supercars, there are rather unconventional and lesser-known types of electrically-motorized vehicles in existence, one of which has now been used in an absurd incident at an airport in Orlando, Florida.

According to the car-focused website The Drive, a 32-year-old airline passenger tried to flee from a police officer on her motorized smart suitcase after being denied to board the plane due to her intoxication. The ensuing chase inside the airport building has been caught on video by the badge camera of the responding officer, who trailed the woman on a regular bicycle. The electric getaway EV in question is apparently a Modobag, a ridable carry-on suitcase that is equipped with a 150W electric motor and can reach respectable top speeds of up to 8mph.

This smart piece of luggage can carry adult riders of up to 260 lbs, has a range of six miles per charge and is further equipped with two USB ports which can be used to charge other devices and accessories. The Modobag is currently being sold for US$1,495 in the US, but as it turns out the ridable electric carry-on suitcase with 2,000 cubic inches of packing space can also turn into a security hazard when being used for inappropriate shenanigans.
