A man has been apprehended and placed in custody following a pursuit and collision in the northern part of Minneapolis on Monday. The Minneapolis police, along with Hennepin County deputies, located an individual with an outstanding warrant for assault around 3:20 p.m. In an attempt to track the suspect discreetly, law enforcement utilized unmarked police vehicles. However, the suspect began driving recklessly through residential areas, causing concern.
When the suspect’s vehicle eventually came to a stop, multiple police units attempted to apprehend him. However, he responded by intentionally ramming into the police cars, rendering two of them immobile, and then swiftly fleeing the scene at a high velocity. Due to the suspect’s dangerous speed, officers ceased their pursuit. Nevertheless, it was later discovered that the suspect had collided with a parked vehicle at the intersection of Glenwood and Penn Avenues. Promptly, officers arrived at the crash site and successfully apprehended the individual, subsequently identified as 36-year-old Shain Alan Freeman. He is currently being held in custody for both his outstanding warrant and the intentional ramming of the police vehicles.
Court documents reveal that this is not the first instance where Freeman has been accused of ramming into police cars and fleeing from law enforcement. He is also facing charges in relation to a similar incident that occurred last August. The police department has confirmed that two detectives from the sheriff’s office, along with a task force officer, were taken to a hospital for evaluation. Fortunately, no one was inside the parked vehicle when it was struck.
