The Fresno County Sheriff's Office has released new video showing the end of a pursuit that started in Parlier.

Deputies say the chase stemmed from an attempted burglary in Del Rey on Monday. When deputies tried to pull the crook over he took off and led them on chase through several cities that include Fresno and Madera.

Eventually, the man drove his car into the San Joaquin River and then tried to grab a canoe to get to the other side. However, the Sheriff's helicopter swooped in and stopped him from getting across where there were 100 boy scouts camping out.

The camp was put on locked down and deputies moved in to take the man into custody. He ran away again, a K9 officer was deployed and deputies were able to arrest him.
