Confused Japanese tourists trigger Utah highway chase that ends with guns drawn
SALT LAKE CITY — A pair of confused Japanese tourists were pulled from their rental car at gunpoint last weekend after they triggered a highway pursuit in southern Utah by not pulling over.
Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Brad Horne says the pursuit started at 1 a.m. Saturday near the Utah-Arizona border when the car was spotted going slowly and swerving.
Horne says he tried to pull the car over, suspecting the driver was intoxicated. The driver sped up and a pursuit began.
Officers threw spikes down, bringing the car to a skidding stop. After the couple failed to follow directions to exit the car, officers approached with guns drawn.
That’s when officers saw the couple’s son in the backseat and realized they didn’t speak English and were confused.
Authorities don’t plan to pursue charges.
