Man broadcasts live on Facebook stolen truck chase

A Washington state man chased down the thief who stole his truck. And then broadcasted the chase live on Facebook.

The vehicle was stolen from Aaron Babcock's family dealership Saturday morning.

A few hours later, Babcock spotted the truck while riding his motorcycle.

Babcock said no one could hear him on the phone, so he began broadcasting the chase.

Friends began tuning in, and someone called Babcock's father.

"It's like watching cops on TV, unbelievable, and then the feed quit which was a heartache for me," said Babcock's father.

The chase lasted for about 30 miles until the driver stopped and surrendered.

Police arrived and arrested the thief.
