BOUNTIFUL, Utah — Bountiful Police arrested a man they say caused several car crashes before getting into a SWAT standoff.
The incident began around 2:30 a.m. Sunday after police said multiple people called in, reporting a truck driving recklessly and attempting to ram a car.
Officials with the Bountiful Police Department said the truck then crashed into a car near 2600 South and Main Street and took off.
Officers found him near 1500 South and Main Street and tried to stop him, but he crashed into another car, rammed a patrol car, then tried to hit two more police vehicles.
The chase came to an end near 400 South and Bountiful Boulevard, where police said a standoff ensued.
Officers said the suspect refused to comply with commands.
The South Davis Metro SWAT Team was then called out.
