Police pursuit suspect injures two LAPD officers

first_imgThe man also drove the wrong way down the the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway at one point during the case, struck a vehicle and continued driving. No one was hurt in the collision. While on side streets, the suspect stopped the van and threw it into reverse at least eight times, striking two police cruisers, police said. One of the cruisers was totaled as a result. The van partially ended up on the squad car’s roof. Two officers were taken to hospitals with non-life threatening injuries, police said. Both were released by 5:30 a.m. One of them suffered a broken arm. One officer was injured when the airbag deployed. The van eventually came to a stop in a cul-de-sac. The man ran away but was tackled by officers a few minutes later and taken into custody on suspicion of felony evading and attempted murder of police officers, police said. VAN NUYS – A man crashed a van into a North Hills strip club today, then led police on a chase — injuring two LAPD officers by intentionally backing into their squad cars – before he was arrested, authorities said. The suspect was identified as Jimmy Giron, 26, of Panorama City. He was being held at the Los Angeles County Jail on attempted murder charges on an officer and assault with a deadly weapon on an officer and pedestrians. Police say he was the man behind the wheel of a van that slammed into the structure housing the Valley Ball Cabaret at 8532 Sepulveda Blvd. at 12:39 a.m., then unsuccessfully tried to run over pedestrians and patrons of the strip club. When officers arrived, the suspect fled the scene, police said. He ran red lights and at times drove the wrong way down side streets, according to the California Highway Patrol. Police said the incident stemmed from an argument the suspect had with his ex-girlfriend.
