Don Johnson, in Las Vegas to film a "Nash Bridges" episode, had his Mercedes stolen and finally recovered this week. On Tuesday, a cop spotted the car but was forced to give up the chase after the thief rammed the squad car and escaped on foot. Then, on Wednesday, the same cop was surprised to see the missing car tooling past him, and the chase began anew. This time, Robert Lee Gibson, 31, rolled the car trying to escape and was arrested.
