Cocaine Thrown from Vehicle During Police Chase
Two men are now in custody after they allegedly hit several police vehicles and also threw out some crack cocaine from their car during a wild chase. This happened in Philadelphia. Talk about a crazy, severe situation.
The incident started just before nine o’clock at night. It started when the 15th District narcotics officers tried to approach a fifty-one year old man and a thirty year old man that were inside of a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis. It happened near the Cottoman and Torresdale avenues. Both of the men were suspects in a drug transaction, according to the local investigators.
As the police announced that they were going to make an arrest, the fifty-one year old driver, quickly put the car in reverse and hit an unattended parked car. He then tried to run over the narcotics officer. Luckily the officer was able to jump out of the way before the man could strike him with the car.
The Marquis went through a nearby playground and then continued to travel wildly until it’s front right tire blew out. Police stated that the police officers then continued to chase, however during the chase the men began throwing crack cocaine out of the vehicle.
Car Chase Ends
The car finally pulled over in the 7600 block of Torresdale Avenue and the men seemed to be turning themselves in. According to the officials, as the officers started coming towards the vehicle the driver and passenger opened their door. However, the driver made a decision to drive off again at a high speed. The driver hit two marked police vehicles in the process and then the chase continued.
During the chase, the Marquis also hit another police vehicle. During this part of the chase, the front tire was completely blown out. The driver finally stopped the vehicle on the 7900 block of Torresdale Avenue. Both of the men finally got out of the vehicle, but the chase wasn’t over yet. The men started to run through a vacant lot.
Police officers quickly chased after the men on foot. They finally got both men apprehended. Investigators say that the men had pills and crack cocaine in their possession. Of course, the police later confiscated the drugs.
Both the men are finally, safely, in custody and were charged with possession of narcotics. The fifty-one year old man was charged with eluding police and aggravated assault. He also suffered from a minor cut to his head and was treated at local hospital, Aria Torresdale. The passenger, a thirty year old man, was somehow not injured. Police say that luckily, none of the officers were hurt during this crazy chase.
