A pickup drove through a fence and evaded at least seven police cars before crashing into an apartment building in Bloomington, Minnesota.
The brief chase occurred on Saturday outside an apartment building on East 86th Street in the Minneapolis suburb as police attempted to corral a white pickup involved in a domestic dispute, according to Crime Watch Minneapolis. A resident of the apartment building recorded the pursuit as the truck went off-road, drove through a fence and contacted at least two police cars.
After the truck came to a stop, a person dressed in blue was seen emerging from the passenger door and climbing onto the roof. It appears police may have used a Taser on this individual. The driver of the truck surrendered to arrest.
Bloomington PD responded to a domestic situation before 2 p.m. at 19xx E 86th St.
When police arrived, a party tried to flee. Police tried to perform a PIT, the driver escaped and proceeded to crash into the building.

This is not the first time violent crime has percolated into suburban communities around Minneapolis. Carjackings have occurred in Roseville, Oakdale and Woodbury as suburban police warn residents about increased violence in areas usually thought to be safe.
“This is the first where victims have been confronted and faced with weapons,” suburban police recently told local media amid the crime wave.
