K9 Gives Chase to Subject During High Speed Chase in Lafayette [VIDEO]
This was a wild scene in Lafayette.
A video of a wild police chase through Lafayette has made it onto social media and we are just glad no one was injured after a car ended up in the median.
The video shows a subject ditching his car off of Hwy 90 near the airport and then running from police.
As Lafayette Police close in on the guy, he runs away, while holding up his pants, and that is when the K9 officer releases the dog.
The subject outruns the dog and then runs into an apartment complex.
What we don't know is if the dog was called-off on the chase or if it was even commanded to apprehend the subject who was on the run.
At this point, we don't know where the subject went or if the police caught up to the guy.
We will follow this story and if there are any additional updates to this story, we will share more here.
