Suspect, 19, rams into pair of Spokane police carsJanuary 5, 2013 @ 6:32 pm
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Spokane police arrested a 19-year-old man accused of ramming a stolen pickup into two police cars.
Officer Brian Eckersley says the incident occurred Saturday afternoon when police spotted Nash Teal getting into a truck that had been stolen in the morning.
Several officers surrounded the truck in an effort to block the suspect, who then crashed into an unmarked police car and a patrol car in a failed getaway.
Eckersley says Teal ran a short distance before being arrested in a nearby yard. One officer sustained an injury and was treated at a local hospital.
Teal was booked into jail on charges of assault and possession of a stolen vehicle.
