A man was arrested hours after leading Unified police on a chase and allegedly ramming a police officer's car.
At 2:26 a.m. Sunday, a Unified Police officer spotted a white Chevy Tahoe at 7800 S. State St. in Midvale matching the description of a vehicle wanted in multiple armed robberies, said Lt. Justin Hoyal. When the officer tried to stop the Tahoe, the driver reportedly fled north and led police on a chase.
Halfway through the pursuit, an officer tried a PIT maneuver to stop the Tahoe, but the driver intentionally rammed the officer's car, Hoyal said. The patrol vehicle was "significantly damaged" from the impact, though the officer was uninjured, the lieutenant said.
