Lehigh County DA reviewing Bethlehem police pursuit

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The Lehigh County District Attorney's office is reviewing a police pursuit in Bethlehem.

It ended in the area of 10th Avenue and West Lehigh Street Saturday morning.

Court records show the driver was under the influence and crashed into several vehicles. 

The DA says an officer fired one shot at the suspect's tire when it ran into a police vehicle that was trying to block off the area.

22-year-old Colin Wentworth of Allentown faces a long list of charges, including fleeing police and aggravated assault.

Because an officer fired a weapon, it is Bethlehem police protocol to have the DA review the case.
