Driver with 20 warrants arrested after leading police on chase in Detroit

2 women arrested for not cooperating in search


DETROIT – A man with 20 warrants for misdemeanor offenses and a suspended driver's license was arrested Wednesday night after leading police on a chase and hiding in a Detroit home.

Michigan State Police troopers tried to pull over a Mercury Milan at 7:25 p.m. Wednesday for careless driving near Beaconsfield Street and Morang Avenue.

When the Milan didn't stop, troopers chased it for a few minutes before the driver pulled into a driveway at 15886 Fordham Street and fled on foot. Troopers searched for the man, but he got away.

There were no injuries during the chase, police said.

A perimeter was established and a K-9 unit led them to a home in the 15800 block of Fordham Street, where the registered owner of the Milan lives.

Troopers spoke to two women at the home, and they didn't cooperate in identifying the driver. Troopers obtained a search warrant and the man walked out of the home and was arrested.

The two women were also arrested for accessory after the fact.

"Once again we see another person risking the lives of the public and police by failing to stop for a cop" Lt. Mike Shaw said. "Simple traffic violations and warrants were made far worse by these individuals failing to obey the directions of police. We also see two other community members that are now facing charges just to hide someone that had fled the police."

The man was charged with felony fleeing and eluding. He is being held at the Detroit Detention Center.

The two women are being held at the Detroit Detention Center pending charges.
