On the morning of Aug. 14, 2019, police observed a motor vehicle driving near the downtown area of the city without any license plates. The officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop, however the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed and was observed weaving in and out of traffic lanes, driving into oncoming traffic, mounting a curb, driving on a sidewalk and striking a traffic sign with the passenger side mirror.

Police discontinued the pursuit due to public safety concerns. Please note that the vehicle did not collide with any other vehicles during the pursuit, and there were not any injuries.
