TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Newly released New Mexico State Police dashcam video shows the moments when a man lead police on a car chase through miles of the northern mountains, then used martial arts training to take down an officer.
The man, 27-year-old Shae Russell Nakai Blair was later arrested on a list of charges including battery of a peace officer, DWI, resisting arrest and more. But his arrest came nearly an hour after the chase began.
