Man flees police, rams patrol cars and tries to run-over officers with child in car

A man allegedly rammed several police cars and nearly ran over officers while attempting to flee police Thursday evening, and he did it with a child in his car.

According to Howard Ludwig, Fairfax County police spokesman, it began when the suspect was driving recklessly and nearly struck an officer riding a motorcycle around 8 p.m. The suspect failed to stop for the officer and fled to Willow Lakes Court, a dead-end street in Clifton.

That is where the motorcycle officer radioed for backup and planned to box him in with the help of responding officers. As officers were responding, the suspect rammed at least one police car and nearly ran officers over as he fled the neighborhood to Clifton Road.

He did not get far, however, as police attempted a PIT maneuver while they pursued him along Clifton Road where he turned down another dead-end street, Old Clifton Road, and was captured.

Amazingly, no injuries were reported. The child was turned over to his mother and the man faces multiple charges, we’re told, though the exact charges were not available as of publication time.
