Spokane police say two patrol cars were damaged but no officers were injured chasing down a suspect who tried to flee.
An officer patrolling an area where a high number of burglaries have been occurring attempted to talk to a man dressed in black, sitting in a car. The car sped off late Monday night at high speeds on residential streets.
Police say the car sideswiped one patrol car and rammed another before it spun out in a front yard where the suspect was finally handcuffed after fighting with officers.
Police found burglary tools in his car. The 47-year-old was jailed for investigation of assault, attempting to elude and resisting arrest.
