An anonymous tip led to the arrest of a man on the run after ramming into a sheriff's deputy and police cruiser.

Anthony D. Miller, 45, was arrested in the area of the Seventh Street Casino in Kansas City, KS. He was later charged with felony aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer, fleeing and eluding, criminal damage to property and misdemeanor theft.

Officials said the sheriff's department attempted to stop a truck for having an expired tag. When the Wyandotte County sheriff's deputy tried to stop the truck, Miller took off, hitting two law enforcement vehicles in the process, according to police.

A police cruiser and sheriff's deputy vehicle were badly damaged during the chase, which ended in the area of 14th and Troup streets. The truck driver stopped, got out and ran.

A woman was in the front seat of the truck and the suspect let her out somewhere near 12th and Troup. She is being questioned at an area hospital.

It was later discovered the truck was stolen.

The deputy and police officer involved weren't badly hurt.

An official said Miller recently got out of prison for a 2005 charge of aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer.
