Man Rams Police Car, Remains on Run

Incident happened Thursday night in the area of 32nd and Bishop streets.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Little Rock Police Department is looking for a man who allegedly drove a car into a police patrol car but kept on going.

It happened just before 9:30 Thursday night south of Roosevelt Road in the area of 32nd & Bishop.

Police say an officer on routine patrol had just turned onto S. Bishop Street at the intersection with 33rd Street, when a car ran the stop sign and hit the patrol car.

The driver then took off down Bishop Street with the patrol car chasing after him until it started smoking and the officer had to pull over.

A backup unit was on the scene quickly after and picked up the chase before losing sight of the suspect's vehicle. The car was found a short time later parked next to an alley with the driver's door open and the engine still running.

K-9 police units were brought to the scene to search the area for the man, but found no trace of him.

The suspect vehicle was taken to impound and the disabled patrol car also had to be towed.

Police say the officer whose patrol car was hit reported having a headache believed to be caused by his head hitting the driver’s side window in the collision, but could immediately return to full duty with no restrictions.
