FOI AT Work: Texas TV Station Obtains Police Chase Video

KLTV 7 has obtained dramatic dash-cam video of Smith County authorities chasing a man in a stolen Tyler police car.

After making numerous requests though the Freedom of Information Act, we were able to obtain the thirty-minute video of that May pursuit.

The chase started on Highway 155 in Noonday after 24-year-old Isaac Garcia attempted to rob two women before allegedly stealing a Tyler police car.

“We’ve impacted again,” said a Smith County deputy involved in the chase.

That was the moment where the chase began to heat-up. Police say Garcia was behind the wheel of the stolen patrol car.

“Oh, he is still west bound,” said the deputy. “He survived it.”

That was the second time police tried to get the car to pull over. About two minutes earlier, the video shows Garcia slamming into the median, barely escaping authorities.

With flashing red and blue lights on, Garcia was reportedly waving police to go around him.
