National

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (FOX4KC) — A driver and passenger are in custody following a police chase Wednesday morning near the route of the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl celebration parade that will take place later.

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas responded to the incident and tells FOX4 it’s unfortunate to have someone who was looking to do such a thing.

Lucas said the driver is suspected to have been impaired and entered the parade route on the north end, wanting to go on a joy ride on the route.

“Police used a number of tactics and maneuvers including stop sticks to stop the driver,” Lucas told FOX4 minutes after the incident. “Police investigated the vehicle and took the driver and passenger into custody.”

Lucas said no officers or people at the parade, including the two suspects, were injured. They are working to establish at this time how the driver was able to get through the barricades and onto the route.
