DASHCAM: Driver Slams Car to End Police Pursuit
As the suspect entered a crowded parking lot, a citizen made a gutsy moveBy Calibre Press | Jun 14, 2017
A gutsy citizen helped Ferndale police nab a fleeing suspect by crashing his van into the suspect’s car to end a chase and prevent what could have been mayhem in a busy parking lot.
The drama began at 9:30 p.m. Friday when an officer tried to pull over the driver of a Chevrolet Impala heading east on 8 Mile Road near Livernois, according to police. It ended in a nearby shopping center with two banged-up vehicles and two people in custody.
The driver, Kolbe K. Jordan, 26, of New Baltimore, has been arraigned on multiple charges and remains in the Oakland County Jail after failing to post an $85,000 bail bond.
A vivid video shot from the dashboard-mounted camera of a pursuing Ferndale police car shows the high-speed pursuit and dramatic ramming by the good Samaritan, followed by police leaping out of squad cars with guns drawn to yank the fleeing motorist onto the pavement.
