After witnessing McNabb drive the wrong way down a one-way street, a FCSO deputy attempts a traffic stop on Aug. 2, 2011. McNabb did not stop after the officer turned on his emergency lights, and started a pursuit.
During the pursuit, the vehicle driven by McNabb, which was stolen from his father, hit a curb and the left front tire was flattened. McNabb continued to flee and eventually stopped in a parking lot and fled on foot.
