OLNEY, Md. (AP) — Authorities in Maryland say they arrested a man accused of stealing a police car and leading officers on a chase before crashing into another cruiser.
Maryland-National Capital Park Police say the man flagged down an officer in Montgomery County at around 3:30 p.m. Saturday and complained of chest pain.
News outlets report the suspect reached through a window to unlock a door, climbed inside and drove off after a brief struggle.
Montgomery County police chased the car for about a mile before it crashed into an unmarked cruiser. The suspect was taken to a hospital. He wasn’t immediately identified and charges weren’t released.
