Colorado Springs police arrested a man driving a stolen vehicle Friday after he allegedly rammed into a police cruiser driven by a detective, who suffered minor injuries in the incident.

Detectives looking for a stolen Nissan Altima followed the suspect, Timothy Hartig, into the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 3900 block of East San Miguel Street about 2:30 p.m.

“As detectives attempted to contact the suspect vehicle, it raced through the parking lot, nearly missing one police cruiser and striking another police cruiser head-on, causing extensive damage to both vehicles,” police said.

The injured detective received medical attention on the scene.

Hartig ran from the scene but was apprehended after he was zapped. Police said they recovered a handgun and stolen property in the Nissan.
