It all started when the arrested driver of the vehicle was weaving while driving and was observed with an open container. The Coppers were trying to explain that given the early morning hour of 1:00 AM made the HIGH SPEED CHASE a relatively safe decision on their part. The reality is driving at high speeds in residential areas in the middle of the night is NOT a reasonable NOR safe thing to do. House walls will not stop a speeding vehicle.
The end result is four expensive taxpayer owned vehicles are severely damaged. a citizens vehicle was damaged and the perp's car is probably totaled. They could have called off the high speed pursuit and followed this guy to his destination and arrested him without incident v. all the mayhem resulting from the pursuit decision.
Here's a link to the story and photos from the KTVB website.
