The Denver police discovered themselves chasing after a stolen tractor that took them on a pursuit by way of the Metropolis Park space and into downtown on Friday evening — and it left two officers damage.
The incident is believed to have begun round eight:30 p.m. on Friday, after the John Deere tractor allegedly turned concerned in a crash near Metropolis Park, 9News reported.
“We had a pursuit, it’s what we contemplate a low-speed occasion,” Denver police spokesperson Tyrone Campbell advised the community.
A number of police vehicles and a chopper pursued the tractor on Friday — the farming automobile hit quite a few individuals’s vehicles and officers ended up shutting down an intersection at Blake and 15th Streets, The Denver Put up reported.
A customer from Texas advised the Put up that she noticed the tractor go down Market Road earlier than it collided with a police SUV.
Police cruisers then surrounded the tractor earlier than members drew their weapons.
The suspect was taken into custody with the assistance of K9s — who reportedly bit him quite a few occasions as he resisted arrest — and a stun gun was used earlier than he was positioned in an ambulance.
