Washington Park police officers arrested a man after he posted two Facebook Live videos of a high-speed chase with police Thursday night that went from East St. Louis into St. Louis and then back to East St. Louis.
Washington Park detective Antonio White said the pursuit began at Louisiana Boulevard and North 36th Street when a maroon Dodge Charger refused to pull over for officers.
In that Dodge Charger, Cameron Taylor began two separate Facebook Live videos of the chase. In them, he can be heard giving messages to his mom and his “fans” while criticizing law enforcement.
“Later on we discovered (Taylor) had many warrants,” White said.
The detective said Taylor had a warrant out of Missouri alleging armed robbery, as well as traffic warrants out of St. Clair County that alleged eluding police, among other things.
