Man leads police on wild chase around Antioch


The chase made several loops around Longview Road in Antioch. It was a weird holiday spectacle for neighbors.

"It was unreal, it was exciting, they just kept going around in a circle, and you could hear it. First a copter would come, then you could hear the tires, cause you could hear the scchhhhhhh... and the sparks flying and you'd drive by and then like 15 minutes later all of a sudden here, he came by again," said Todd Beck, an Antioch resident.

Each pass neighbors say it seemed as if another tire was gone.

"Scratching up the street pretty good, then the next time he come by the same way and the last time he stopped right in front of my house," said Al Rudkin, an Antioch resident.

The Richmond Police Department gang unit and other officers chased the subject on foot, but it was a dog that brought him down.

"He got out and took off running and he made it to that driveway over there and a dog took him down. The police were all over him and there was cops everywhere," said Beck.

The suspect was treated at the scene and then taken away in an ambulance.
