Fort Worth police arrested two men Friday evening after a pursuit following a car theft and home invasion, according to reports.

Police responded around 7:40 p.m. to a home invasion and robbery call at a home on the 4000 block of Hampshire Boulevard. The Fort Worth Fire Department and MedStar also responded to the call.

An elderly woman who made the call said she had been assaulted, and her vehicle had been stolen. Responding officers noted the details of the stolen car, including the plate number, and broadcasted it to all local patrol channels.

At 8 p.m., police attempted to pull over the driver of a vehicle matching the description of the stolen car, a gold Kia Sorento, while it was driving westbound on West 7th street near Summit Avenue. The driver sped off, and a chase ensued.

The pursuit made its way through West Division. During the pursuit, the suspect’s vehicle hit two uninvolved cars on Camp Bowie. Police said that the occupants of the vehicles were uninjured, and the cars were damaged but drivable.

Eventually, the suspect’s car made a turn on Pentecost Street and ended up spinning out of control. Once the car stopped, police blocked off the vehicle and apprehended two male suspects who were inside the car.

Both the driver and passenger were taken into custody. The driver was charged with evading arrest or detention in a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident. The passenger was detained pending an investigation. Police said both suspects face additional pending charges.

All the more reason for 2A, as Supreme Court has ruled that POLICE have NO DUTY TO PROTECT.

It amazes me how some of our younger generation is on a fast track path to self destruction as they encounter the Criminal Justice System. If they want to regrip healthy social norms, I recommend Correct Rehab Solutions to Addressing a Criminal Behavior Problem.
