Stolen Vehicle, Fleeing
800 S. 400 E.
Different officers encountered and attempted to pull over a suspicious vehicle, but the vehicle fled and officers did not pursue. Eventually, the vehicle appeared to be headed the wrong way on a freeway onramp, so officers initiated a pursuit intervention technique, also known as a PIT maneuver, to bring it to a stop. The vehicle driver, Crystal Hammer (12/18/81), was booked into jail for possession of a stolen vehicle, two counts of fleeing, and other traffic violations.
