1. If the pursuing patron were actually an off duty employee of Chili’s, how would that impact your agency analysis?
2. When the pursuing patron called the Chili’s employee with a description of the pursuit, and that employee in turn called the police, isn’t that an act of consent by Chili’s?
Bosse was part of a group of four teenagers who fled from a Chili’s restaurant without paying. A regular patron of the restaurant saw them leave without payment and followed them in his own car. The patron's car was unmarked; it bore no Chili’s insignia. He wore civilian clothing and no uniform or other insignia of employment at Chili's. In the course of the high-speed chase, the teenagers collided with a cement wall and were injured. The pursuing patron left the crash scene area and was never identified.
