GPD justifies chief's hot pursuit

Guam - An investigation is underway to determine why patrol officers did not respond to Police Chief Paul Suba's calls when he conducted a highspeed chase on Saturday night.  The chief, while in an unmarked official vehicle, pursued a hit and run suspect from Hagatna to Pago Bay, even crashing into the car several times. 

GPD Spokesperson Officer Allan Guzman says the chief witnessed the suspects going in excess of 100 miles per hour.  "He did make contact with the patrol offices but at the time they were down on an emergency call at the same time too. So he tried keep as much as he could at distance, but knowing the hazards that the individual was causing the roadway, he continue to follow him until he met him down at Pago Bay," he said.

The case remains under investigation and arrests are pending.
