Britta Parkway

Details

Officers attempted a traffic stop on a stolen Jeep Cherokee on Britta Parkway yesterday afternoon. Instead of cooperating with police, the driver reversed, at high speed, into a light pole, before accelerating and speeding away. The MPD – per policy - did not pursue the Jeep, but did find it abandoned on Windflower Way. It was still running, the passenger door was ajar, and the rear of the Jeep was damaged with the back windshield shattered.
