Dashcam Shows Florida Police Use PIT Maneuver To End Pursuit

A Minnesota man who is wanted for federal drug charges led police on a high-speed chase this weekend in Florida. Authorities say the man responsible has an arrest warrant issued from Moorhead. Thirty-five-year-old Ryan Swartley from Park Rapids is being held on a charge of aggravated fleeing, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He is also charged with violating probation after leading police on a pursuit through Panama City Beach on Saturday. Authorities say the speeds reached over 90 miles an hour. It all started when deputies spotted Swartley parked outside of a condo building. That's when a deputy tried to pull him over, police say he then took off. Authorities used a pit maneuver to stop him, but not before Swartley allegedly crashed into two different civilian cars along with damaging multiple police cars.
