BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Anne Arundel County Police have arrested a man who they say ran from Baltimore City Police.
Police say the driver of a Durango side swiped several cars in Baltimore City and then drove through the streets at a high rate of speed.
The driver passed through Light Street and ran over the temporary lines that the Department of Public Works had laid for as repairs are being made at a big water main break that happened earlier this week.
Police say they ended their pursuit as the Durango drove into Anne Arundel County. The car crashed into another at the intersection of Telegraph Road and Morgan Station Drive. The driver then jumped from the car and ran on foot.
Anne Arundel County Police caught up with the suspect a short time after the crash in a vacant home near the intersection of Reece Road and Telegraph Road.
The name of the suspect has not yet been release, however, charges are pending in both Anne Arundel County and Baltimore City.
Officials at the Department of Public Works says crews were able to make emergency repairs to the temporary lines within about 30 minutes and have restored water service to the area.
