Clifton Man Sends Police on Wild Police Chase

According to the reports released thus far, a Clifton native lead police on a wild police chase through two counties and only ended when the Defendant’s attempt to ram a police car failed. It is not being released at this point in time, but it appears that the Defendant, a thirty-nine year old Clifton resident was already being investigated for an unrelated incident by the Clifton Police Department, which could be the bases for the Defendant fleeing. It doesn’t seem at this point in time that any one was injured as as a result of the chase or the crash. The Defendant was arrested and charged with eluding, aggravated assault, aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose (car) and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle.
