Jodon F. RomeroOn September 28, 2012, Jodon F. Romero, already wanted for a parole violation, stole a Dodge Caliber at gunpoint in Phoenix, Arizona. He was soon located by local law enforcement offers who followed for a high-speed chase. At one point, Romero fired his gun towards police cars and a police helicopter though no one was hit. He continued to evade police until 75 miles outside of Phoenix he pulled into the desert, stopped the car, pulled out a handgun, and shot himself in the head.
Of the many local and national television news stations that were covering the police chase live, Fox News went as far as airing the suicide on national television, though on a five-second delay. News anchor Shepard Smith immediately apologized for the broadcast as did Fox News Vice President Michael Clemente later.
