FOLLOWING A POLICE CHASE IN THE VALLEY. TAKE A LOOK AT THE RED JEEP. THAT’S WHAT POLICE ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW. WE WILL BE BACK HERE WITH MORE NEWS NOW.>>>SO WELCOME TO FOX10PHOENIX.COM. VERY, VERY BUSY DAY ON THE STREAM AND NO DOUBT WE ARE COVERING THIS LIVE POLICE CHASE FOR YOU IN THE VALLEY RIGHT NOW. THIS IS REALLY WEST SIDE OF TOWN RIGHT HERE IS THE SUSPECT VEHICLE THIS IS RED JEEP. AT THIS MOMENT WE DON’T KNOW TOO MUCH ABOUT THE CHASE AND STILL GETTING THAT DETAIL IN AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING US HERE LIVE FOX10PHOENIX.COM.>>>NOW JOINED BY TROY HAYDEN. A POLICE CHASE IN THE VALLEY.>>SO THIS CHASE STARTED OUT IN THE WEST VALLEY AND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT THIS IS RED JEEP AND LOOKS LIKE CHEROKEE OR GRAND CHEROKEE AND WE HEARD ABOUT THE CHASE IF THE FAR WEST VALLEY. THEY HAVE COME THROUGH ON INTERSTATE 10 ALL THE WAY THROUGH DOWNTOWN WHICH IS PROBABLY THE MOST CONGESTED AREA OF FREEWAY WE HAVE. WE ARE NOT IN A RUSH-HOUR OR CLOSE RIGHT NOW AND THEY COME THROUGH DOWNTOWN AND GOTTEN ON THE LOOP 202 WHICH IS JUST NORTH OF SKY HARBOR AIRPORT. AND IN THIS PICTURE HERE WE CAN’T SEE ANYBODY CLOSE AROUND. WE KNOW THE HELICOPTERS ARE FOLLOWING AND THE GROUND UNITS AS WELL.>>>WELCOME BACK TO NEWS NOW. WE WERE COVERING THIS LIVE POLICE CHASE FOR YOU IN THE VALLEY RIGHT NOW. WE HAVE ALL EYES ON THAT RED JEEP RIGHT NOW JOINED BY OUR VERY OWN TROY HAYDEN AS WE CONTINUE TO WATCH THIS.>>YEAH, SO WE FIRST PICKED THIS UP IN THE WEST VALLEY. INTERSTATE 10 IS THE MAIN HIGHWAY THAT RUNS FROM PHOENIX TO LOS ANGELES. SO ON THE WEST SIDE OF TOWN SO CLOSER TO L.A. WE HEARD ABOUT THIS CHASE GOING ON. THE CHASE HAS AT THIS POINT STARTED OUT WAY FAR WEST AND COME ALL THE WAY THROUGH DOWNTOWN PHOENIX. INTERSTATE 10. AND AT INTERSTATE 10 A CONGESTED PART OF OUR FREEWAY SYSTEM AND ABLE TO GET OFF ON A DIFFERENT FREEWAY ON THE LOOP 202 AND HEADS OUT TOWARD TEMPE AND MESA AND EVENTUALLY APACHE JUNCTION AND GOES EAST. RIGHT NOW WHAT WE CAN SEE IS IT LOOKS LIKE THIS DRIVER. WE DON’T KNOW WHY THEY ARE TRYING TO STOP THE DRIVER. IT LOOKS LIKE THE DRIVER IS DRIVING NORMAL FREEWAY SPEED.>>AND FOR THE PEOPLE THAT ARE ON THE ROADWAYS RIGHT NOW, THEY MIGHT NOT EVEN KNOW THAT A POLICE CHASE IS HAPPENING, RIGHT?>>I WOULD THINK SOME IT’S TOUGH TO SEE FROM THIS PICTURE BUT I WOULD IMAGINE YOU’VE GOT MULTIPLE DPS UNITS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY. WHAT WE HAVE SEEN IN THE PAST IS WHEN THE UNITS GET UP CLOSE TO THE DRIVERS THESE DRIVERS WHO WANT TO TAKE OFF, IT CAN AGITATE THE DRIVER, THE SPEEDS CAN INCREASE AND THAT MAKES THE ROADS MORE DANGEROUS FOR EVERYBODY AROUND ONE OF THESE CHASES. TO SO IT APPEARS THEY ARE KEEPING A DISTANCE AND HAVE THE HELICOPTERS UP AND WATCHING THIS PERSON.>>WHAT TYPE OF VEHICLE DO THEY HAVE THAT AREN’T MARKED THAT ARE CLOSELY WATCHING THIS? BECAUSE IT ALWAYS SEEMS AFTER WHEN A POLICE CHASE IS OVER, THEY ARE RIGHT THERE READY TO DO A TAKE DOWN.>>I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD GO INTO THAT. EVERY TIME WE DO THEY PUSH BACK AND SAY DON’T — ALL I WILL SAY IS THIS, THE MARKED UNITS AREN’T THE ONLY ONES IN PURSUIT AND I WOULD IMAGINE THOSE OTHER UNITS AND TEND TO BE LARGER. TRUCKS AND THINGS LIKE THAT BECAUSE THEY CAN WITHSTAND A PIT MANEUVER AND STUFF LIKE THAT. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY ARE GETTING IN THIS CASE BUT THIS IS GOING ON LONG ENOUGH THAT YOU WOULD THINK THOSE UNMARKED UNITS MAY BE INVOLVED.>>AND IT SEEMS OUT HERE IN ARIZONA WHEN IT COMES TO POLICE CHASES, IT’S MUCH DIFFERENT THAN WHEN WE SEE THE POLICE CHASES OUT IN L.A. IN L.A., IT SEEMS LIKE THEY WILL LET THE CHASE GO ON FOR HOURS. IF IT GOES ON.>>WELL, THERE IS AN EQUATION YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT. AGAIN, IF YOU HAVE SOMEBODY WHO IS BRANDISHING A GUN AND TAKING SHOTS OUTSIDE, THAT’S AN IMMINENT THREAT TO EVERYBODY AROUND. AND I THINK THAT CHASE BECOMES DIFFERENT AT THAT POINT WHERE YOU HAVE TO — WE HAVE TO GET THIS PERSON OFF THE STREETS. AGAIN, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THIS CHASE INVOLVES. IT COULD HAVE BEEN A SIMPLE TRAFFIC STOP OR A WARRANT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT WHERE THEY TOOK OFF AND MAY NOT FEEL LIKE THE THREAT IS THAT IMMINENT TO GET UP CLOSE AND CREATE A CHASE WHERE YOU GOT SPEEDS ON THE FREEWAY OF 115 MILES PER HOUR OR SOMETHING OR SURFACE STREETS WHERE THEY ARE BLOWING THROUGH RED LIGHTS AND TAKE OUT A MINI VAN WITH A FAMILY IN IT.>>AND AS WE ARE CONTINUING TO WATCH THIS, IT DOESN’T — APPEAR NOW THAT HE IS DOING ANYTHING ERRATIC. JUST –>>WHAT YOU ARE SEEING AT THE TOP OF YOUR SCREEN, TEMPE TOWN LAKE AND HE IS GETTING INTO THE — THE AREA RIGHT THERE WHERE SOUTH SCOTTSDALE AND NORTH TEMPE AND SO HE IS CONTINUING TO MOVE OUT EAST. PLENTY OF DISTANCE IT LOOKS LIKE AROUND HIM. I DON’T SEE UNITS UP CLOSE AND NOT DRIVING ERRATICALLY. AND HERE — THIS PERSON RIGHT HERE, PROBABLY JUST SOMEBODY DRIVING BY ON THE FREEWAY. NORMAL FREEWAY SPEED.>>WOULDN’T KNOW. AND THE THING WITH ALL OF THE TIME HERE WITH THE SUSPECTS FOR THESE POLICE CHASES –>>THERE IS A DPS UNIT RIGHT THERE.>>EVENTUALLY KNOW THEY WILL GET BUSTED. HERE YOU HAVE THE HELICOPTERS WATCHING YOU, BUT JUST SEEMS LIKE THEY WANT TO EXTEND THEIR LAST REALLY MOMENTS OF FREEDOM.>>IT’S TOUGH TO GET INSIDE THEIR HEADS. I SAID MANY TIMES DURING THE CHASES WE DON’T KNOW HOW THIS PERSON’S DAY STARTED. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT CRIME — OKAY, THIS IS WHERE IT STARTS TO GET HAIRY. THEY ARE TAKING AN OFF-RAMP HERE THIS IS NEAR ASU IF THEY GET OFF. LET ME SEE WHERE HE IS GETTING OFF HERE A BIG MALL IN THE AREA. AND LET’S SEE IF HE GETS OFF THE FREEWAY. SO THIS TO ME IS WHERE –>>TEMPE MARKETPLACE?>>YEAH, NOT QUITE TO THERE YET. I DON’T THINK, I THINK THEY ARE WEST OF THERE. THIS MAY BE — IS THAT APACHE THAT COMES THROUGH THERE OR RURAL? IF YOU GO UP TO THE RIGHT, TO THE TOP OF THE SCREEN, THAT’S GOING TO BE ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY AND THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN IS HEADING MORE TOWARD SCOTTSDALE. AND THE FREEWAY IS VERY WIDE THERE. THAT’S HIM RIGHT THERE? THERE ARE A BUNCH OF FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS AND GETTING UP CLOSE TO ASU WHICH IS A HUGE CAMPUS.>>OH, YEAH. REALLY. YEAH. AND DEFINITELY DON’T WANT IT TO GO THERE. DON’T WANT TO –>>THEY ARE DOING IT. THAT’S WHERE THEY ARE HEADING RIGHT NOW. THEY WILL CROSS TEMPE TOWN LAKE HERE. AND HEAD TOWARDS THE CAMPUS OF ASU AND AGAIN A VERY CONGESTED AREA. AND I HAVE TO SAY AFTER WATCHING THIS, YOU KNOW, IT’S TOUGH TO KNOW AGAIN WHAT THEY DID BEFORE HAND OR WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF DOING BUT IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO BE ONE OF THESE ERRATIC-TYPE CHASES WHERE SOMEBODY WILL GET HURT. NOT AT THIS POINT. YOU NEVER KNOW.>>COMING TO A STOP SIGN AND A STOPLIGHT.>>GOING TO BE INTERESTING. EXACTLY WHAT’S GOING TO BE HAPPENING HERE. AND I ALWAYS WONDER WHEN THEY GET IN THESE SITUATIONS — THERE IS A TRUCK THAT’S KIND OF — WELL, DOES HE KNOW — RIGHT THERE. LOOK THERE THEY GO. THEY PINNED HIM IN. AND HE IS TRYING TO GET AWAY NOW AND ANOTHER ONE.>>DISCRETION IS ADVISED AS WE DON’T KNOW –>>ALMOST HAD IT THERE. SEE, NOW YOU GOT SOME OTHER ISSUES. NOW YOU GOT SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS THEY THERE ARE UNMARKED VEHICLES BEHIND HIM AND NOW LOOKS LIKE — OBVIOUSLY THE SPEED HAS INCREASED NOW.>>ASU’S CAMPUS HERE.>>SO NOW REALLY, REALLY, REALLO THE METAL –>>OH, NO. WOW — ALMOST LOST IT RIGHT THERE AND YOU SEE HE IS REALLY SPINNING HERE.>>THAT WAS CLOSE. AND THIS IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. NOW HE IS DRIVING IN ON COMING TRAFFIC. AND AGAIN JUST — IT LOOKS LIKE A TIRE IS GONE. HE IS THROWING UP — DEFINITELY THROWING UP SOME –>>LOOK OUT!>>OH!>>>OH, NO.>>WE DON’T WANT TO SHOW EVERYTHING THERE. THAT WAS A BAD — VERYSi BAD CRASH. WE WILL CONTINUE TO WATCH IT RIGHT HERE AND KIND OF GIVE YOU DETAILS BUT WE WILL GO BACK AS SOON AS WE CAN BUT THAT WAS A BAD INTERSECTION CRASH THERE. WE SAW IT COMING — WOW. WE ARE HOPING THAT PERSON IN THAT
