Multiple units from Chatham County joined in the case even as the pursuit continued into Lee County. The Highway Patrol and Lee County Sheriff's Office joined the chase and stop sticks were used which flattened 3 of the tires on the suspects car. However, the suspect continued to drive on three flat times and entered into Moore County.

In an effort to stop the pursuit before entering into a more populated area the Highway Patrol utilized the Pit Maneuverer (Pursuit Intervention Technique) to force the driver to lose control and stop the car on U.S. 1 By-Pass near Crains Creek Road.
Cypress Pointe Fire/Rescue and Moore County EMS were dispatched to assist with removing the suspect/victim from the car and treating him for minor injuries.
