Police arrest man after Lancaster County pursuit

CHRISTIANA, Pa. (WHTM) – A Lancaster County man was arrested after he led sheriff deputies and officers on a low-speed chase Thursday afternoon, authorities said.

The district attorney’s office said police were trying to serve a warrant on the 26-year-old Gap man in Christiana when he took off and drove at the law-enforcement officials, prompting a deputy to shoot. No one was struck by the gunfire.

The man then led deputies and Christiana police on the pursuit on Route 896 that ended when he crashed in the 600 block of Noble Road.

Authorities did not release the man’s name.

A female passenger was in his car. Neither was injured.

The district attorney’s office said more details on the incident and warrant will be released at a later time.
