A 42-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man has been charged in connection with the car chase with law enforcement vehicles through the secured Chiefs Celebration Parade on Wednesday, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.
Addae J. Doyle, dob: 1/2/1978, faces Resisting Arrest, Possession of a Controlled Substance and a misdemeanor Driving While Intoxicated.*
According to court records filed last evening, about 8:13 a.m. on Feb. 5, 2020, law enforcement officers working the Chiefs Parade Celebration had secured the parade route from Riverfront Road to Pershing Road to Grand Boulevard near Union Station. A green Ford Taurus approached barricaded portions of the parade route near Front Street and Riverfront Road. Addae J. Doyle, the defendant, failed to stop and knocked down multiple barricades. A marked police car with lights and sirens began pursuing the defendant’s vehicle. Doyle accelerated to approximately 60 mph, driving in the closed parade route. More emergency vehicles pursued the defendant. Officers along the route deployed stop sticks, deflating the tires on the defendant’s vehicle. At Pershing and Grand Boulevard, officers deployed a TVI (tactical vehicle intervention) to disable the defendant’s vehicle. Officers removed Doyle from the driver’s seat. Officers found substances in the vehicle that tested positive for methamphetamine. Preliminary toxicology results showed the defendant tested positive for the presence of amphetamines and cocaine.
Jackson County Prosecutor Baker thanked the Kansas City Police Department officers and the other area law enforcement officers who finally stopped Doyle in his vehicle on the secured parade route. Their actions helped protect and keep citizens safe, she said.
The case remains under investigation and other charges likely will be filed.
Prosecutors have requested a bond of $75,000/10 percent. Prosecutors also requested special conditions on the defendant, including that he could not be in the presence of firearms or ammunition and he is prohibited from operating a motor vehicle without a valid license and he must avoid the use of alcohol and controlled substances. While he is being supervised before trial, he will be subject to random drug testing.
