ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland motorist trying to elude police struck several patrol cars and was taken into custody after a foot chase, authorities said.

Anne Arundel County police said in a news release that a patrol officer stopped to check on a driver who appeared passed out in a car on Wednesday, but as he approached, the driver woke up and sped off, the Capital Gazette reported.

The officer turned on his lights to make a traffic stop, but the driver didn’t stop, police said. More officers joined the chase, and when the driver encountered a waiting patrol car, he sped up, hit the officer’s car and fled again, according to police.
