BALDWIN, Pa. —
A man accused of aiming his car at an officer who had someone pulled over early Tuesday morning is on the run after a chase and crash in Baldwin.
Baldwin police said Lafon Ellis, 18, left behind his ID after crashing his car, which is why officers know whom they're looking for.
Investigators said they had another car pulled over about 3 a.m. Tuesday when Ellis aimed his car at an officer. Police said that's when the officer began chasing Ellis.
“He nearly struck one of our vehicles. One of the officers then initiated a pursuit, which ended on Glass Run Road under the Glenwood Bridge,” Baldwin Police Chief Michael Scott said.
Scott said at one point during the chase, Ellis pulled over to talk to the officer who was chasing him.
“As the officer approached him there was a short dialogue where the individual asked what was up. At that point the officer ran the plate and the individual took off again,” Scott said.
Officers said Ellis finally pulled off on Glass Run Road, crashed and took off running into a nearby wooded area.
“You think you’re pulling someone over for a stop sign violation or whatever and this turns out to be the case. Someone is wanted by the U.S. marshals,” Scott said.
Authorities said Ellis had two people in the car with him during the chase. They were questioned and later released.
No one was injured in the chase or crash.
