I'm not an advocate for restrictive pursuit policies or one that says we shouldn't chase the bad guy when he runs. But this seems like it might have been a situation where it would have been wise to discontinue the pursuit and catch him later. They already had him stopped so I'm assuming they had him ID'd already. They at least had the license plate of the vehicle. The footage doesn't show much of the pursuit but it does say it covered two counties. So I'm assuming it went on for a while. Fortunately no one was injured but when you've got a suspect going the wrong way down a highway, it is only a matter of time.
