Transit bus leads Atlanta police on wild chase after officers respond to dispute, police say

ATLANTA (AP) — A metro Atlanta transit bus fled officers responding to a dispute on board Tuesday afternoon, mowing through vehicles as it led police on a lengthy chase into a neighboring county, according to police and television news footage.

News helicopters followed the dramatic pursuit of the Gwinnett County Transit bus, which police say took off after officers responded to the conflict around 4:30 p.m. near downtown Atlanta.

Atlanta police said she was eventually arrested and a suspect was taken into custody.

Television footage showed the bus hitting several vehicles and crossing onto the wrong side of a road, pursued by police. At one point, a police vehicle appears to pull in front of the bus, but it continues to drive.

It was unclear whether anyone was injured. Atlanta police did not immediately release additional details.

News footage also showed police taking someone away from the bus in handcuffs after it stopped in neighboring DeKalb County.
