According to Kansas City Missouri Police, 42-year-old Addae J. Doyle, the person who drove through the Chiefs Super Bowl parade route Wednesday morning, has been charged.
The incident occurred Wednesday, Feb. 5 as crowds gathered downtown along the Chiefs Super Bowl parade route.
Court documents state that the driver of a vehicle broke through the parade barrier at Front Street and Riverfront Road at approximately 8:13 a.m.
Officers were immediately alerted and Clay County Sheriff’s Deputies deployed Stop Sticks.
The vehicle continued south down the route at about 60mph and then turned at Pershing, headed for the crowd.
An Independence, Missouri police officer driving a KCPD vehicle used tactical vehicle intervention, known as the PIT maneuver, to stop the driver at Pershing and Grand Boulevard.
Other officers then blocked the suspect in and took the driver and passenger into custody and no one was injured.
A search of the vehicle revealed no weapons.
Doyle has been charged with resisting arrest, felony possession of a controlled substance, and misdemeanor driving while intoxicated.
According to court documents, Doyle stated he didn’t know what he was doing when he got arrested and the last thing he remembered was getting high.
Preliminary toxicology results revealed Doyle tested positive for amphetamines and cocaine.
In a press conference, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas praised law enforcement for their work and bravery.
“What we saw yesterday was exceptional work and decision-making by law enforcement… Every day in America there [are] stories in the news about police activities, what went wrong. If you think about yesterday, you’d see an amazing example of what went right.”
