Shocking video shows the initial altercation, rolling gun battle, and final moments of a violent high-speed chase and crash that spanned two states and multiple police jurisdictions.

You will remember in July 2023, Joshua Ringle, resisted arrest and fought with police before leading them on a chase from Niles to South Bend.

Shocking video shows the initial altercation, rolling gun battle, and final moments of a violent high-speed chase and crash that spanned two states and multiple police jurisdictions. (WSBT video)

The police chase and man hunt ended in downtown South Bend, where Ringle was found dead by the St. Joseph River.

Until now, what happened during the deadly altercation was somewhat unclear. Just weeks after that, chase WSBT filed an official request to get dash cam and body cam video of the incident.

In January, WSBT 22 was the first to tell you the St. Joseph County Prosecutor released Ringle died by blunt force trauma and that law enforcement did act appropriately.

That information given to us six months after the chase and Ringle's death.

Last week, police provided 14 angles of the traffic stop and pursuit. That includes 13 dash cam videos and one body cam video.

Video begins with the initial traffic stop in a Niles business parking lot - a Michigan State Police trooper attempts to take Ringle into custody for an outstanding warrant

You can hear an MSP trooper say that the suspect is fighting him.

Ringle proceeds to physically fight with the trooper while saying he will not go.

The officer falls to the ground as the suspect and trooper continue to fight.

The violent altercation lasts just more than a minute. The trooper deploys a taser and repeatedly instructs Ringle to step out of the vehicle. He then tells Ringle to drop the gun.

Ringle took off south on State Road 933 heading toward Indiana. Dispatch audio captured the high-speed chase, reaching speeds of 115 mph.

The cars ca be seen weaving in and out of traffic.

Less than five minutes into the chase, debris is seen flying off Ringle's red Kia. There are sparks coming from the right tires. Ringle points his gun out the window...shots are fired.

Dash cam video captures the trooper saying that Ringle is pointing a gun out the window, that shots were fired, and that shots were fired by police.

Ringle led troopers past Memorial Hospital into downtown South Bend....the chase coming to a screeching halt when Ringle slams his car into a South Bend Police vehicle in front of a McDonald's.

Ringle takes off running toward a wooded area. You can hear multiple shots being fired by police.

Dash and body cam video shows the final moments. Ringle running from police as a Michigan State police car slam into a tree.

Indiana State Police investigators told WSBT22 Ringle was found dead by the river and that Michigan State Police were the only agency to fire a weapon.

The Prosecutor's office later confirming that Ringle died from blunt force trauma. They also said that law enforcement acted appropriately, and no further action is needed.
