NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A Utah couple has been arrested after fleeing from police with four children in the back of their minivan.
Dashboard cameras captured the chase and the arrest. The video shows Utah Highway Patrol troopers following a Dodge Caravan on Interstate 80 Sunday night.
Officers had stopped the van earlier, but the driver, Robert Hills, took off. The chase reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.
Finally the van stopped and officers handcuffed Hills, who begged them not to hurt his children, and said he feared someone was after him.
The children later said they thought they were going on a fishing trip.
Officers arrested Hills and his wife. The four children were placed with the Division of Child and Family Services.
