LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – The southbound lanes of Interstate 25 were shut down between Loveland and Fort Collins for a time late Thursday afternoon following a vehicle pursuit that started in Wyoming and ended with law enforcement deliberately spinning out the suspect on a Colorado section of Interstate 25.

A spokesman for the Colorado State Patrol confirmed that the Wyoming Highway Patrol notified Colorado authorities at 4:27 p.m. about the pursuit.

CSP’s spokesman told CBS4 that stopsticks were deployed in an effort to deflate the suspect vehicle’s tires, but that police eventually performed a PIT maneuver to end the chase.

The maneuver is technically known as a “pursuit intervention technique” but more easily understood as a forced spin-out.
