HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police say a 47-year-old man used a pick-up truck to ram two police cars after he fled from a traffic stop early Friday morning. The incident began when officers pulled the pick-up over in front of Waimalu Shopping Center.
Police determined that the man had outstanding warrants and that's when the man fled the scene. Officers followed the truck to Kaahumanu Street, fronting Stuart Anderson's restaurant, where they corned the vehicle between two police cars.
As officers attempted to take the man into custody, he started the truck and rammed the police vehicles. He was finally arrested and pulled from his vehicle.
The suspect was injured in the incident and was taken to Queen's Medical Center in serious condition. He faces charges of attempted murder, a parole violation and possible drug offenses.
