An Oakland County Sheriff’s deputy sustained slight injuries in a high speed chase that started in Pontiac early Tuesday morning and ended with a collision in Auburn Hills. Two suspects were arrested.
At about 1:00 a.m. this morning, deputies fielded a call about a man with a gun near 12 South Mill Street in Pontiac.
When they arrived, police learned that the man had left the scene in a distinctive vehicle- a Chevrolet HHR.
Before long deputies spotted the sporty ride, which would not pull over, and the chase was on.
The vehicles roared through the streets of Pontiac, then headed toward Auburn Hills. At about 2:00 a.m. Auburn Hills police were contacted and joined in the chase, which was then proceeding northbound on Perry Road.
The chase ended with a crash.
Police cornered the HHR in the parking lot of Harry’s Market near Perry and Walton Roads in Auburn Hills.
One of the suspects reportedly bailed out and fled on foot. The driver tried to escape the trap and collided with a deputy’s cruiser and an Auburn Hills patrol car.
Both men, ages 30 and 38, were arrested. One resisted and was hit with a taser.
A deputy involved in the collision was slightly hurt.
