Stolen Armored Personnel Carrier Leads Police on Chase Through Richmond

The man was taken into custody around 9:40 p.m. when he just stopped the armored vehicle.

"The vehicle stopped at East Broad Street and 11th Street in the City of Richmond", a State Police spokesperson said.

The personnel carrier was driven away during routine training at Fort Pickett and has been returned to the base, authorities said.

Several people shot video of the pursuit which began at Fort Pickett in Nottoway County about 25 miles east of Dinwiddie.

The vehicle then made its way northbound on Interstate 95 and into the City of Richmond.

Sgt. Keeli Hill, a Virginia State Police spokeswoman, said Thursday that she couldn't give specifics about what drugs Yabut might have used, saying an investigation was ongoing.

1st Lt. Joshua Yabut told The Associated Press he was following commands to take the vehicle as part of a training exercise to gauge the police response. "Cotton" Puryear said Yabut was not authorized to drive the carrier off Fort Pickett "to any location for any reason".

Footage posted on social media showed more than a dozen police cars in pursuit of the personnel carrier, which was not equipped with any weapons. While the M577 was not armed, Yabut carried his own personal weapon-but no ammunition.

"This is INSANE!" wrote Twitter-user @ParkerSlay89, posting a video of the chase. He deployed to Afghanistan from 2008 to 2009 with the Illinois National Guard.

Yabut was taken into custody in downtown Richmond just before 10pm and is being held at the Richmond jail.

The suspect that was driving the stolen armored vehicle has been apprehended.

Police scrambled to clear the busy street as the vehicle cruised through. There were no accidents or injuries reported in connection with the incident, according to WTKR in Virginia.

The vehicle, which belongs to the Virginia National Guard, did not carry any weapons and drove at a maximum speed of 45 miles per hour during the pursuit, NBC Washington reported.
