Seat Pleasant officer injured in pursuit
A Seat Pleasant police officer who was taking part in a vehicle pursuit was injured Sunday morning when his cruiser was rammed by the car being pursued, officials said.
The incident began shortly after 4 a.m., when a car was seen traveling the wrong way on Central Avenue in Seat Pleasant, Prince George's County police said.
The driver ignored orders to stop, and officers from the county and Seat Pleasant pursued him. Officers blocked several side streets to keep other traffic off Central Avenue; in the 6200 block, the suspect turned and drove into a parked patrol car. The officer inside sustained minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for observation.
The suspect, described only as an adult, was taken into custody at the scene, and a weapon was recovered, police said. Charges were pending.
