On Wednesday, officers tried to pull over 33-year-old Jamie Arndt for allegedly driving a stolen SUV.
Police say Arndt failed to stop leading police on a 30 minute chase through Des Moines.
The 33-year old has been charged with second-degree theft, eluding, operating while intoxicated, and driving with a suspended license.
Now investigators are now looking into whether too many police cars were involved in the afternoon pursuit.
Department policy states no more than three patrol cars can directly participate in a chase.
