MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – A police chase down Government Street ended in an accident, and only FOX10 News has surveillance video of the suspect in handcuffs after trying to flee from police.
The arrest took place in Will Buschman’s driveway, a block away. He had no idea what was going on. He was sitting in his kitchen when suddenly he looked out the window to see everything unfold.
The suspect walked up to the house, knelt down and crawled under his house, obviously in no rush.
Only seconds later, a mobile police officer found him, pulled him out, and then handcuffed him with little or no resistance.
“I heard a cop say ‘hands up,’ obviously there was an arrest going on,” Buschman said. “I looked out the front door and saw lots of police cars on the streets and then saw footage on my CCTV camera.”
A chase down Government Street had taken place moments earlier. A car crashed into a lawn at the corner of Monterey Street and Government. Airbags deployed, the windshield shattered and at least two other women were seen taken away on stretchers.
The suspect attempted to flee and ended up at Buschman’s house just a block away.
“I heard a noise,” he said. “I don’t know what the noise was. I think it was the guy trying to get under my house.
What he said was that normally a quiet street was teeming with officers a few hours earlier.
Although it shocked Buschman, he said he was just grateful his family was safe.
“He came from the side yard and tried to hide under the house, and was arrested about 90 seconds later,” he said. “Obviously, that’s not a good hiding place.”
Mobile Police Service Monday was around 11:39 a.m. Sunday when officers attempted to carry out a traffic stop on a vehicle at Dauphin Street and Monterey Street. Police triggered lights and sirens, but the driver refused to stop, and after a short chase the driver collided with another vehicle and became disabled, the MPD said.
The driver and passenger fled on foot and were apprehended by officers. Both were taken to hospital for treatment and then transported to the Mobile County Jail, according to police.
Louis Shamburger, 44, and Brittany Martin, 33, were arrested. Shamburger was charged with attempted escape and was released, according to prison records. Martin, who remains jailed according to records, was charged with attempted escape and had other active warrants for his arrest.
