Man Arraigned in Court After Arizona Chase

In Arizona, the man who police say they were chasing when two news helicopters crashed on July 27, 2007, was arraigned in court this weekend .

Police say 23-year-old Christopher Jones jumped out of a pickup and stole another truck.

A SWAT team later arrested him after he barricade himself in a house.

As this happened, two choppers covering the story collided on live TV, killing four people on board.

Officers say Jones could be held responsible for the deaths in the collision.

As of now, he's charged with vehicle theft, aggravated assault on an officer and one count of resisting arrest.

The Phoenix media finds themselves on the other side of the news.

"I don't even think it's hit us. As a family, this has been very difficult," KNXV Meteorologist Kaley O'Kelley said.
