Excitement levels in the city of Kansas went up another notch on the Chiefs’ parade route. A car led the Kansas City Police on a chase in downtown Kansas City just over three hours before the Chiefs Super Bowl parade. The suspects in question drove through the barrier set up the Kansas City Police just after 8:00 am CST. The police chase was brought to an end when the Kansas City Police eventually forced the suspects’ car to a stop near the end of the Chiefs Super Bowl parade route.
