Video: Police chase broke out just before Chiefs Super Bowl parade
Things are expected to get plenty rowdy in the streets of Kansas City on Wednesday as the Chiefs celebrate their first championship in 50 years, but it will be tough to top the action that took place before the victory parade even began.
A police chase broke out just after 8 a.m. Wednesday morning when a car busted through one of the parade barriers and tried to get away. Kansas City Police were eventually able to perform a PIT (Pursuit Intervention Technique) maneuver to stop the vehicle, and thankfully nobody was injured.

We knew there would be plenty of action at the parade if Travis Kelce’s antics up to this point are any indication, but a police chase on a street lined with thousands of people is the stuff nightmares are made of. Kudos to the Kansas City Police for proving they were prepared and handling the situation as well as possible.
