Career criminal who led police on wild chase sentenced

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The career criminal who led police on a 100-mph car chase in 2016 apologized in court Tuesday.

"I get one chance in life right now to change my life," said Bryson Bagio, at his long-delayed sentencing hearing.

"I recognize what I did out there and that was not me, the person that was out there, the bad choices I made, I understand that, your honor. But I'm asking to have this chance to finish this program, to learn as much as I can. I'm sorry for whatever I did wrong."

After Bagio's statement, a judge sentenced him to what amounts to five years behind bars because he was allowed to serve multiple terms concurrently.

In August 2016, Bagio led police on a two-hour chase, zigzagging across Oahu.

The chase ended in Aiea when he hit multiple cars stuck in rush-hour traffic on the H-1 Freeway.
