ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A 33-year-old man is facing new charges after a chase with authorities ended with the suspect vehicle crashing into an Anchorage restaurant.
The man was also arrested on unrelated outstanding warrants. Anchorage Police said in a statement Friday night that the man is being questioned.
The chase began after police tried to pull over a Ford Explorer. The driver was suspected in an earlier vehicle theft.
Authorities pursued the driver, who ran a red light and hit a vehicle and light pole before crashing into the restaurant.
Police officers say the driver was arrested after he tried to flee the scene on foot.
The suspect sustained minor injuries in the crash. No others were hurt.
