Armed Carjacking Suspect Captured on Live TV (Video)
Christopher Sullivan, an armed carjacking suspect, was captured on live TV in Jefferson County, Colo., on Wednesday.
KDVR's helicopter camera chased Sullivan as he allegedly went on a two-hour crime spree around Lookout Mountain, which is about 12 miles from Denver (video below).
Sullivan and an unidentified underage girl reportedly fled after a Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputy stopped them for a traffic violation.
"During the suspects' attempts to elude police they stole three vehicles, burglarized two homes, menaced 12 innocent bystanders and left at least six separate crime scenes in their wake," the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said yesterday, noted Reuters.
The KDVR helicopter camera broadcast live as Sullivan and the girl walked through the woods on the mountain.
After Sullivan and the girl separated, he allegedly tried to steal trucks from parking lots, broke into a home, stole a SUV, but later crashed the vehicle into a ditch.
On the video, Sullivan tried to stop several vehicles on Interstate 70 before being tackled by Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputy Fred Haggett in the middle of the highway.
One bystander got out of his car and helped Deputy Haggett hold Sullivan down until more law enforcement arrived.
The female suspect was also arrested.
