Utica Man Assaults Medic After Police Pursuit
UTICA (Chelsea Spears) --A medic was headbutted and injured while attempting to assess a man involved in a Utica police chase for injuries early in the morning of Nov. 16.
The male suspect also damaged the interior of the police cruiser, kicking and spitting inside the car after resisting arrest.
The chase ensued when a Utica Police Officer responded to a complaint in reference to two intoxicated individuals in a parking lot near a Utica bar. Upon the officer's arrival, the male suspect fled the scene in a vehicle, leaving behind the female passenger.
The suspect then crashed into a power pole less than half a mile from the original location of the incident. The man attempted to flee on foot but was caught.
The suspect was subdued and transported to Licking County Justice Center on multiple charges and to receive a BAC Test.
