Sheriff’s MPs thought they had enough confirmation that only the suspect was in the car. The windows were tinted and towards the end the suspect blocked the windows with umbrellas and even a laundry basket. An ambulance takes care of the child.

During the pursuit, the driver hit a number of vehicles and MPs attempted at least one PIT maneuver.
