The Kansas City Police Department took two people into custody after a pursuit took place on the Chiefs Super Bowl parade route. The pursuit went for multiple blocks down the parade route, despite the car having multiple flat tires.
“A vehicle broke through the parade barrier on the north side of the route at 8:12 a.m.,” KCPD said in a statement. “All officers on the route were immediately alerted. Clay County Sheriff’s Deputies assisting KCPD deployed Stop Sticks, which the vehicle struck.
“The vehicle proceeded south down the route to where it turned at Pershing and was headed for the crowd. Multiple police cars were prepared to block it. Officers then used tactical vehicle intervention, also known as the PIT maneuver, to stop the suspect car on Pershing. Police took two suspects into custody. No injuries have been reported.”
