Arizona suspect leads cops on high-speed chase, tries to steal motorcycle

The suspect in a high-speed police chase outside Phoenix was shown on live TV getting out of his pickup truck and trying to steal a man’s motorcycle during the pursuit.

Video of Thursday’s incident in Mesa, a Phoenix suburb, shows motorcyclist Brandon Jenkins being jumped from behind by the suspect, whom police identified as Joshua Monigold, 31. Police said they were chasing Monigold after he refused to stop for questioning in a weekend hit-and-run in which a woman was seriously injured.

“He said, ‘They’re chasing me, they’re chasing me. Please let me have your bike,’” Jenkins, 26, told Fox 10. “I could hear him screaming that over my headphones. I told him no, and I cursed at him a few times. I told him to get the hell off my bike.”

The video shows what happened next.

Fox 10 reported the chase came to an abrupt end miles later when Monigold flipped the pickup on I-10. He was hospitalized.
