Traffic stop leads to Irving chase, arrest

Posted: Updated:
IRVING, Texas -

An SUV full of allegedly stolen audio equipment caught the attention of Irving police overnight, and the officers ended up in a chase.

About 2:30 a.m., an officer attempted to pull over a suspicious Jeep and its two occupants along Loop 12.

The Jeep's driver put the pedal to the metal and started a high-speed chase.

The suspects headed westbound on Highway 183, but the vehicle went out of control near MacArthur Boulevard.

The Jeep spun off the road and into a ditch on the service road, spinning sideways into a utility pole.

Both suspects jumped out and took off running, but one was caught later behind a nearby church. The second suspect remains at large.

Officers had to use the jaws of life -- heavy duty rescue equipment -- to get the suspicious audio and car stereo equipment out of the mangled SUV.
