Within 15 minutes of the call, the Air One chopper was in the skies, following right behind shooter Charles Wallace.

From the chopper, you can see Charles Wallace race down Highway 2, and swerve in an out of traffic at more than 100 miles an hour.

Deputy Jeff Thurman was the tactical flight officer in the Air One chopper, keeping a vigilant eye on the suspect, and manning the camera. “all that info's coming in, we're scanning the area trying to find all the major roads and see if we can locate the vehicle.”

Deputy Jason Snyder was the pilot during the chase. “there was a great deal of importance in finding this guy so I wanted to do what I could to get the aircraft out there to find this guy and bring him down.”

Watching it all unfold seems like something out of the movies.
