A wild police pursuit Sunday afternoon involving one of their own vehicles!

It all started near the intersection of Cache La Poudre and Nevada Avenue when an officer was flagged down to assist some people on the side of the road. As the officer left his car, someone else jumped in and drove off.

The driver started a 20 minute pursuit heading northbound on I-25. During the pursuit, he tried to run other officers off the side of the road.

He came to a stop near the Larkspur area when a tire blew out.

Officers had to stun the man twice with tazer guns.

He faces numerous felony charges including aggravated motor vehicle theft.

It's still not known why he did it.
