I wish we had some of those TV traffic helicopters like they have in LA, because this would have been fun to watch.
A man, who was involved in an dispute earlier, was returning to the scene of the dispute with a gun when residents flagged down a passing officer, said Mitchell. The officer attempted to stop the man, who sped away in an older model Thunderbird.
Officers from East, North and West precincts eventually joined in the chase, which wound through Woodlawn, Avondale, downtown, and portions of north Birmingham. The chase ended when the fleeing man wrecked his car on Bankhead Highway near Finley Boulevard.
The suspect suffered a minor injury and was taken into custody. He faces numerous charges, Mitchell said.
I’ll say. Plus two wrecked cop cars.
