A fleeing driver in a stolen vehicle ended up cutting into a radio interview of Volusia Sheriff Mike Chitwood on Tuesday afternoon, according to the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s office posted video from the interview, which was hosted on the Drew Garabo Live radio show.
While the interview was initially focused on Chitwood’s recent pushback against antisemitic groups in Florida, it quickly turned into a race on-air as the sheriff was revealed to be chasing a stolen vehicle along Interstate 95.
The video cuts to the chase along the highway, showing Chitwood and other law enforcement agents driving after the stolen vehicle and ultimately nabbing the driver.
Back on the radio show, the host asks whether Chitwood is alright, to which the sheriff responds that he is.
“We’re good. We’re good. It was one of those things that FHP was chasing a car, and I just happened to be at the next exit where this son-of-a-(expletive) was coming,” Chitwood said.
The sheriff’s office stated that the suspect was taken into custody, and a handgun was recovered.
No additional information was provided on the suspect’s identity or the details behind the theft.
