Suspect tries to ram police during chase through Point Place

TOLEDO -- A man is recovering in the hospital after police say he led them on a chase through Point Place.

The chase began at Alexis and Suder, ending at an apartment building in the 2600 block of Suder.

Police say they tried to pull the guy over around 12:30 early Sunday morning at Alexis and Suder, but he took off.

He apparently wound up crashing into something at Harbor and Pageland, but kept going, eventually slamming into an apartment building.

He was taken to Saint V's with minor injuries.

During the chase, TPD tells WTOL the driver tried to ram into their officers at least twice and say the suspect may have been drunk.

He's now facing charges of eluding a police officer, reckless operation, and possibly assault on a police officer.
