Desperate times call for desperate measures, and when police officers in Michigan were trying to catch a murder suspect who was trying to escape on foot while shooting at them, they run him down in a patrol cruiser.
Dash cam footage of the incident shows the moment a police chase involving 33-year-old Adam Nolin came to an end on Northbound U.S. 131. Nolin was being pursued after allegedly gunning down his 27-year-old girlfriend Tia Mae Randall in Wyoming.
Shortly after Randall’s body was discovered at the couple’s home, Grand Rapids police spotted Nolin driving on U.S. 131 and quickly gave chase.
Nolin was eventually stopped and surrounded by half a dozen police vehicles but tried to flee on foot, shooting in the direction of officers in the process. One officer pursued Nolin in a police cruiser, hitting and sending him flying.
The Detroit Free Press reports that no officers or civilians were injured in the pursuit, and that Nolin sustained non-life threatening injuries to his face and arm.
After being treated, Nolin was arraigned in a Grand Rapids hospital on five charges, including attempted murder for shooting at police officers. Additionally, he was later charged with open murder and felony use of a firearm in the suspected murder of his girlfriend.
