KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida couple has been arrested after authorities say they rammed into three patrol cars during a two-day chase.
Osceola County Sheriff's deputies responded to Walmart on Tuesday after reports of a theft. The suspects jumped into their truck and authorities said Sarah Thomas intentionally struck the patrol car as she sped away.
A search revealed their license plate was stolen and that one of the suspects, James Darren Morris, had six active warrants and was on probation.
Two days later, authorities spotted the car and tried to stop Morris. But he allegedly sped off, driving the wrong way on Interstate 4 and striking two other patrol cars before crashing.
Morris faces several charges including aggravated assault on an officer.
Thomas was charged with fleeing and eluding.
