On Wednesday, Windsor Police officers responded to Saci Salon at 461 Erie Street East for a report of a broken window by a man driving a black Jeep.
Officers arrived and found the black Jeep driving northbound on Highland Avenue. Police say their officers activated the cruiser’s emergency lights and the suspect vehicle suddenly accelerated toward the police vehicle.
The Jeep drove to the front of the police cruiser and then drove off the roadway, narrowly missing the cruiser. The black Jeep continued to flee officers. Police engaged in a short pursuit which ended when the Jeep struck a parked vehicle and a pole, preventing the Jeep from being driven any further.
The driver was arrested after a brief struggle with officers.
A 48 year old Windsor man is facing charges.
