A carjacking suspect near Denver sent sheriff deputies on a wild chase Wednesday that unfolded in front of a television news crew.

A deputy stopped a man and a woman who were acting suspiciously while driving in Golden, Colorado. They took off when the deputy went to check out the driver's license information.

A chase ensued and at one point the man broke into a home and drove through the homeowner's closed garage door in order to steal the SUV inside.
