NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say they were able to apprehend a suspect they were running after thanks to a passing motorist who saw the foot pursuit and offered an officer a ride.
The driver fled on foot and officers gave chase.
During the pursuit, an unknown citizen driving by offered a ride to one officer, who accepted. The officer was dropped off in front of the suspect and arrested him.
The anonymous driver then left the scene, but police issued a public thank you.
The suspect, meanwhile, faces a charge of driving a motor vehicle while under suspension, and drug offenses.
