Man arrested after leading police on chase
A man was arrested Thursday night on multiple charges after he led police and deputies through Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township.
Ypsilanti police Sgt. Kent Overton said at 9:29 p.m., an Eastern Michigan University police officer attempted a traffic stop near Huron River Drive and Ann Street, but the driver wouldn't stop.
An Ypsilanti police officer was in the vicinity and witnessed the driver ignoring the EMU patrol. The Ypsilanti officer pursued the vehicle on Huron River Drive.
"The EMU police officer did not give chase, but our officer continued the pursuit," Overton said.
The chase headed south into Ypsilanti Township and at that point, the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office took over the chase, Overton said.
"The sheriff's office was listening to the pursuit and joined in once it went in the township and we discontinued the chase," he said.
The driver crashed at the intersection of Huron River Drive and Whittaker Road, according to Huron Valley Ambulance representative Joyce Williams.
"The car went through the intersection there and spun out and hit the curb," Williams said.
At 10: 55 p.m., the HVA received a call from the sheriff's department seeking assistance. Williams said HVA started to send an ambulance, but the call was canceled.
The driver was arrested on multiple charges, including fleeing and eluding arrest.
Further details regarding the incident or the suspect were not available.
