From there, police chased Kiselka up Brownshill Road to the intersection of Hazelwood Avenue. During the chase, Kiselka ran red lights, swerved into oncoming traffic, and passed vehicles in oncoming lanes.


The chase eventually led to the Parkway East where he drove around traffic on the ramp and onto the Parkway East.

Just before he reached the Squirrel Hill Tunnel, police were able to stop him and attempted to remove him from the truck.


He resisted, fighting officers in an attempt to escape.


He was taken into custody and it was found his license had been suspended for charges related to driving under the influence. Police also learned the truck actually belonged to someone in West Virginia but was bearing Ohio plates.


A search of truck found marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and a switchblade.


Kiselka is facing several charges including resisting arrest, reckless driving, recklessly endangering another person, and attempting to elude police.

Here's another punch-in-the-face for the tow and recovery industry where professionalism goes out the window. It's because of actions like this one where towers won't ever get a foothold up on being recognized as true professionals.   R.
