Several police vehicles pursued the suspect on Route 51 until the driver reached a circular turnaround on Weber Avenue in Ilion, and intentionally rammed into three police vehicles.

The suspect continued on until reaching the intersection of Sixth Avenue and Second Street, where he then drove onto a yard and came to a stop.

Police arrested 19-year-old Dumo Emmanuel Lual of Utica, and charged him with second- and third-degree criminal mischief.

Lual was arraigned and released on his own recognizance. He is scheduled to reappear in Village of Ilion Court at a later date.
