US. Mount Clemens, MI – A 23-year-old man was arrested Thursday after leading police on a chase in stolen car in Mount Clemens, according to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.
An acquaintance of a victim whose car was stolen Monday from a Mount Clemens business Thursday morning noticed the 1999 Saturn parked in the lot of Clinton Place Apartments off North River Road in Mount Clemens and called police.
Investigators from the Macomb Auto Theft Squad conducted surveillance and attempted to stop the vehicle after the suspect, Dylan Michael Yates, entered it, sheriff’s officials said. But Yates sped
“He struck several parked cars and drove over the curb,” sheriff’s Lt. Brian Barlog said.
Sheriff’s deputies pursued Yates in the Saturn over several streets in Mount Clemens before he jumped out of the “rolling” car near Grand and Washington streets, where he was apprehended after a physical confrontation with deputies, police said.
Four deputies were injured, including one who reached into the rolling vehicle and two others “during the tussle” with Yates, Barlog said.
Yates also received minor injuries.
