KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City, Missouri, police on Friday released video and radio traffic of the pursuit down the Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade route.

Officers initiated the chase after a green Ford Taurus broke through the parade barriers on Grand Boulevard.

Shortly after the car made it onto the route, authorities deployed stop sticks at East 3rd Street and Grand Boulevard, near the start of the parade route.

After that, the KCPD video shows an officer attempt to flag down a vehicle, which refuses to stop.

Another officer a short distance away deployed a second strip of stop sticks.

At East 6th Street and Grand Boulevard, a patrol SUV pulls into the middle of the route, attempting to block the Taurus head-on.

The car stops briefly and several officers began to converge on the car, which backed into another patrol car before taking off southbound once again.

After hitting a third set of stop sticks, all of the suspect's tires were flat, according to the new video from KCPD.

As the chase neared Pershing Road and Grabd Boulevard, near the end of the parade route, officers were concerned about pedestrians at the corner.

"At 20th, we've got a bunch of pedestrians down here," a KCPD officer said on the radio. "There's no clear path. We need to get this stop. Towards Pershing, there are pedestrians all sides. If we could box it in, I would say it may be the time."

"Permission anyone needs to take that car out, take it out," another voice said over the radio as the vehicle rounded the corner.

At that point, several patrol cars boxed the Taurus in and used a tactical vehicle intervention maneuver, also known as the PIT maneuver, to bring the suspect vehicle to a halt.

The video shows officers swarming to the scene, several with guns drawn.

Ultimately, the chase ended without gunfire and with the suspect, 42-year-old Addae Doyle, and a passenger were taken into custody.

He has been charged with resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor DWI. The passenger was released without charges.

Police said Doyle tested positive for amphetamines and cocaine.

KCPD Chief Rick Smith commended the officers on their "wonderful decision-making" and said the department is "very fortunate that this ended when it did and how it did," noting the situation was close to becoming an officer-involved shooting.
