Photographer helps stop chase suspects

Posted: Updated:

Three people were arrested after a dangerous high-speed chase that ended in west Dallas.

Grand Prairie police began pursuing the suspects in an older model Lexus at about 3 a.m. Wednesday. They took off after officers tried to pull them over for a traffic violation on Highway 161.

The chase lasted about 20 minutes. The suspects allegedly tossed unknown objects out of the window as they drove east on Interstate 20 to Highway 175 into the Dallas Mix Master and then back along Interstate 30 into west Dallas.

It ended after they started going the wrong way on the service road near Cockrell Hill Road. Police decided not to follow, but caught up with them again after they bailed on foot.

Officers arrested a man and a woman. Another male suspect jumped out in front of a photographer's vehicle with his hands in the air. The photographer ordered him to get on the ground and flagged down officers.

Police are still trying to figure out why the suspects ran and what they were threw out of the window.
