Police followed the vehicle to US Route 56, where they used stop sticks to pop the suspect’s tires. The driver continued to drive and later flipped the car where Old Route 56 and Route 56 converge.

A 16-year-old boy, who was a passenger in the vehicle, immediately got out an surrendered. He was uninjured and was taken into custody.

A man got out of the driver’s side door and fought with officers. He was wrestled down and taken into custody by multiple officers.

One of the officers received minor injuries to his hand during the arrest. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
