Traffic pursuit ends after successful PIT maneuver – Dec. 24, 2010

Bridgeport Post troopers arrested a suspect after a traffic pursuit that required the use of the PIT maneuver.

The troopers were attempting to stop the vehicle for an expired registration when the suspect refused to stop. A trooper attempted to initiate the PIT maneuver, but the vehicle swerved away and then stopped.

As a trooper stopped and exited to engage the suspect, the vehicle sped off. Afterward, several additional troopers assisted and successfully engaged the PIT maneuver to end the pursuit.

Charges are pending for feeing and eluding, probation violation and failing to register as a sex offender.
