As the chase continued to Corrigan, Officer Terry Valka with Corrigan Police Department successfully spiked Mitchell's tires. Officer Valka and Steven Dickens (also with Corrigan PD) joined in the pursuit. Mitchell still continued to flee at over 100 miles per hour.

His vehicle came to rest upright on the north-bound side of 59. Valka apprehended Mitchell. An ambulance was dispatched to the scene and transported Mitchell to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Christian Mitchell is facing felony evasion charges.
