Movie: Albuquerque teenage leads police on wild car pursue across town
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It was a wild car pursue. A 16-year-old in a stolen SUV outrunning police for almost ten miles through city streets ended with the teenage getting an up close meeting with a police canine.
It all began when police spotted a stolen SUV. When officers attempted to stop 16-year-old Antonio Munoz, he took off and commenced a wild pursue all across town.
As Munoz made his way through Nob Hill, police continued to go after him through the International District as he blew past crimson light, after crimson light.
At one point, Munoz almost hit a number of cars as he made a turn at Louisiana and Zuni.
As the pursue continued, he sped past a construction squad and almost hit them along with people standing nearby.
“He’s attempting to ram civilians that are just standing on the side of the road,” said an officer.
Officers then attempted to stop Munoz by laying down spikes, but he managed to avoid those.
As Munoz ran another crimson light, this time in the busy Lomas and Wyoming intersection, an officer rammed the SUV but clipped another driver, too.
That still didn’t stop the teenage as he continued onto Indian School, weaving in and out of traffic.
As the officer attempted to keep up with Munoz, he almost hit a pedestrian crossing the street.
Eventually, police ended the pursue with a PIT maneuver on Eubank after Munoz was driving the wrong way.
The teenage ran to a nearby arroyo with a police K9 on his trail. As police yelled at Munoz to capitulate, he screamed in agony.
“He’s biting me too hard,” said Munoz.
The teenage was clearly in ache from the injuries from the K9, but officers had no patience for him.
Munoz did have five felony warrants before this incident. He was charged with Aggravated Onslaught on a Peace Officer and Aggravated Fleeing of an Officer for this crime.
