Dallas police chase ends along runway

DALLAS (AP) — A suspected carjacker led police on an hour-long chase Thursday before crashing through a locked chain-link fence and driving across runways at Dallas Love Field, temporarily halting flights, authorities said.

The afternoon chase ended when police surrounded and rammed a pickup truck alongside a busy runway, pulled the shirtless driver from the cab and placed him in handcuffs.

Operations on both major runways were stopped from about 3:20 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., said Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen. One arriving flight was held up, and all departures were held on the ground until the chase was over. Bergen didn’t have a count of exactly how many flights were affected.

Television footage showed police appearing to patiently pursue the slow-moving pickup from expressways to side streets until it drove through the airport fence, along the airport taxiways and past one end of its busiest runway.

Since Dallas police arrested the man on federal property, the FBI likely will send the police report to the U.S. Attorney’s office and let federal prosecutors decide how to proceed, said FBI spokesman Mark White.

‘‘We’re all kind of looking at it trying to figure out just exactly what is happening here,’’ White said.
