BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – A man is facing multiple charges after striking two Bridgeport police cars with the Mercedes he was driving on Monday while trying to escape the scene of an accident, police said.
Anthony Cameron, 25, was arrested and charged with evading police, striking two marked police vehicles, recklessly endangering his wife and child, possessing marijuana and more stemming from Monday's incident.
The incident began when a Bridgeport officer came across an auto accident on Golden Hill Street where the left rear bumper of a parked vehicle had been struck, police said. As the officer was notifying dispatch of the accident, the Mercedes that had apparently caused the accident fled the scene, police said.
While fleeing, the Mercedes struck a parked police car on Greene Homes Drive and hit another car 30 feet farther down on Washington Avenue, police said.
Cameron then got out of his car and led officers on foot, eventually giving up near Highland Avenue, police said.
His wife and 2-month old child were in the Mercedes and unharmed, along with the officers in each vehicle that was struck, police said.
Cameron was held on $50,000 bond, and his wife was detained on an existing warrant in Stratford. The baby was placed in the care of a family member, police said.
