Denver PD Helicopter Air-1 aids in arrest on I-225 02/16/17

02/16/17 Aurora, CO – Breaking News 1:12AM – A lengthy airborne police surveillance this evening has led to an arrest of at least 1 subject on I-225 in Aurora.  The vehicle was wanted by Broomfield Police for striking a Broomfield cop car and was spotted about an hour ago in Denver District 4.  Air-1, the helicopter support unit of the Denver Police Department picked up the car in southwest Denver and followed it discreetly in the dark of the night for an extended period of time.  At one point in time the vehicle, which traveled many miles around Metro Denver, was actively pursued on the ground by at least one outside police agency.  The car may have struck a second police car during its evening of lawlessness according to scanner traffic.  At 12:50AM the car became disabled in the southbound lanes of I-225 just south of I-70 and 2 occupants bailed out on foot.  Aurora PD, Denver PD and numerous other law enforcement units closed in on the bad guys and snatched them up without incident in a neighborhood just west of I-255 and south of I-70.  Hats off to all the cops concerned for keeping the Public safe on this one and still getting the crooks.  Special kudos to “Air-1” for yet another exceptional job of airborne law enforcement this evening.  Shane Anthony reporting
