The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News - — CRESENCIO RO­DRIGUEZ-DEL­GADO

A Fresno man is in jail af­ter he al­legedly rammed a Clo­vis po­lice car and led of­fi­cers on a chase in a stolen ve­hi­cle, po­lice say.

Po­lice pub­lished a photo on Face­book of sus­pect Ja­son Kirscher. He al­legedly led an 8.5-mile pur­suit with of­fi­cers af­ter they spot­ted him driv­ing past the Clo­vis Po­lice Depart­ment head­quar­ters about mid­night Fri­day, in­side a stolen Honda Ac­cord.

Clo­vis po­lice of­fi­cers pulled Kirscher over at Tem­prance and Bullard av­enues, but then Kirscher re­port­edly rammed the pa­trol car with the Honda and drove off. The pur­suit ended near Sun­ny­side and Hern­don av­enues, when a po­lice of­fi­cer used a spike strip to stop the Honda, ac­cord­ing the depart­ment’s Face­book post.

Kirscher ex­ited the ve­hi­cle and at­tempted to run away and jump a fence, but he was even­tu­ally ar­rested by po­lice. Clo­vis po­lice said he was com­bat­ive with po­lice and left a mi­nor in­jury on an of­fi­cer.

He was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of ve­hi­cle theft, as­sault with a deadly weapon, pro­ba­tion vi­o­la­tion, threat­en­ing an of­fi­cer and evad­ing po­lice. He was booked into Fresno County Jail.
