A pair of suspects took multiple law enforcement agencies on a high-speed chase across both Lee and Collier Counties that left two police vehicles disabled before ending in a dramatic pursuit intervention technique early Monday morning.
According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, at around 2:17 a.m. Monday morning a patrolman’s vehicle was nearly struck on the southbound exit ramp at Alico Road in Lee County by a 2006 Chevy HHR that was swerving in what was described in the report as a DUI pattern.
The trooper attempted to stop the car for DUI but it fled west on U.S. 41 at a high speed, then south through Bonita Springs and into Collier County. One FHP vehicle was mistakenly disabled by a stop stick deployed by the Collier County Sheriff’s Department during the chase while another was disabled by debris from the suspect’s vehicle, according to the report.
The Collier County deputies took over the chase at Golden Gate Parkway and eventually used a pursuit intervention technique, a maneuver that strikes the fleeing vehicle forcing it to turn sideways, to disable the suspect’s vehicle and end the chase.
Two suspects, Dustin Feif, 30, and Amber Brown, 32, both from Kansas were arrested. Feif has out-of-state warrants with extradition. The car had a stolen tag and is considered to likely be stolen itself. An investigation is still ongoing.
