ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Police in Maryland say a motorist trying to elude police struck several patrol cars as he tried to elude capture.
The Capital Gazette reports Anne Arundel County police took an 18-year-old into custody after they said his vehicle struck a tree and he fled on foot, leading to a foot chase that ended in a backyard.
Online court records show Tyjuan Keon Tates of Baltimore is charged with multiple counts of felony and misdemeanor assault, possession with intent to distribute drugs and more than half a dozen firearms offenses.
Authorities say he ditched a handgun during the foot chase.
