Police swarmed the Pentagon City area Saturday night after a Virginia State Police pursuit ended in the neighborhood.
“At 10:06 p.m., Virginia State Police attempted a traffic stop on a BMW traveling north on I-95 near Exit 158 in Prince William County. The traffic stop was for excessive speeding,” VSP spokeswoman Corinne Geller tells ARLnow. “The vehicle refused to stop and a pursuit was initiated. The pursuit ended at South Hayes and South Fern Street in Arlington. The adult male driver and adult male passenger were taken into custody.”
Geller said two state police vehicles were struck during the chase but no troopers were injured.
“The suspect vehicle struck two state police vehicles during the course of the pursuit,” she said. “The patrol cars sustained minor damage. No state police personnel were injured. No other vehicles were struck.”
Those in the Pentagon City area described a large police response, including a helicopter overhead.
