Dangerous traffic stop shuts down I-35

Posted: Updated:

Police have reopened the northbound lanes of Interstate 35 at 119th Street after some tense moments during what they said was a "high-risk traffic stop."

Officers said they had drawn guns on a man on the highway but provided no details of how the situation came about or how it was resolved.

The incident involved both Kansas Highway Patrol troopers and Olathe police officers.

Troopers told KCTV5 News that they were involved in a chase, and Olathe police confirmed the incident on the highway was related to that chase, but no other information was being made available.
