Good Samaritan helps police end vehicle pursuit
Keath Hausher was driving a pickup truck that helped block the suspect’s vehicle.
The pursuit of two women accused of trying to run over a St. Peters Police officer ended with their arrest in west St. Louis County Missouri Wednesday. The chase was caught on camera.
A Ford Focus struck several vehicles and was weaving in and out of traffic during rush hour.
After being pulled over, the suspects attempted to drive over a police officer, and then led police onto the Interstate.
Keath Hausher was driving a pickup truck that helped block the suspect’s vehicle. That’s when police were able to apprehend the suspects.
“I heard the car impact 2 others behind me and so I just turned over to try and block them, try to stop them,” he said. “Once I did, law enforcement took over.”
Hausher has ties to law enforcement. He founded the Patriot Training Foundation, a non-profit that provides police training at no cost to police departments. He does not advise the average person to try and block a car trying to escape police.
“Most people got out of the way like they should. I guess with my familiarity with that type of situation, I felt pretty comfortable trying to do something about it,” he said.
“Police do this every single day. The attention I’m getting for this is kind of crazy but that’s what a policeman does every single day, put their life on the line - and I wish they got more attention like I’m getting for this.”
Very true Mr. Hausher! But what you did took courage as well, and you deserve some recognition for that too! :)
