Dashcam video shows police chase into Arlington

Dashcam video gives a closer look at part of Wednesday's police chase to catch a bank robbery suspect.

It started in Colleyville, wound through several cities and ended with a standoff outside of an Arlington school.

Police say the chase reached speeds of up to 100 MPH.

Colleyville police say they were on the suspect’s trail soon after the robbery thanks to teamwork by several police departments, combined with mistakes made by the suspect.

The standoff would go on much longer, but dashcam video from Euless police shows the suspect's tire starting to disintegrate after being hit by a stop-stick earlier in the chase.

About an hour and a half later, 34-year-old Deshawn Maurice Moffett finally cooperated and surrendered.

The standoff came to a peaceful end near the Ferguson Education Center in Arlington.

"We do actually start seeing more of an incident of bank robberies for the holiday season, so we always put out bulletins to be more vigilant and observant around the holidays,” said Assistant Chief Robert Hinton with the Colleyville Police Department. “Thefts and burglaries these types of offenses."

Colleyville police say Moffett had outstanding warrants, but the FBI has taken over the bank robbery investigation.

At some point, Moffett is expected to make an appearance before a U.S. magistrate in Fort Worth.

Colleyville police say witnesses gave them a good description of Moffett's car, and then he made himself conspicuous by driving 60 to 65 mph in 30 MPH zones.
