Trooper uses PIT maneuver to stop fleeing vehicle during chase

An Arizona Department of Public Safety trooper used a PIT maneuver to end a chase on Interstate 17 north of Phoenix.

DPS said troopers were responding to reports of an erratic driver when they encountered 37-year-old Ryan Begay, of Keams Canyon, behind the wheel of a gold four-door sedan that matched the vehicle description.

They attempted a traffic stop but Begay failed to yield, leading troopers on a pursuit.

Troopers were setting up spike strips to try and stop the vehicle when the situation took a turn.

Begay got off the freeway at Pioneer Road and then immediately got back on the freeway, this time going northbound on Interstate 17.

Within moments, a DPS trooper used a PIT maneuver to stop Begay's vehicle.
