Tulsa Police arrested a man they say hit a police car, backed up and ran into another vehicle Wednesday night. Officers booked the man on several charges including driving under the influence.

Officers had stopped on 11th Street near Highway 169 around 11 p.m. July 4th to help a disabled vehicle. 

TPD pulled in behind the car with emergency lights on. That's when police say an impaired driver hit the back of the police car, backed up and took off.

He then hit another car at a traffic light, turned into an apartment complex and ran off. Police chased him on foot and tracked him down. He was taken into custody on complaints of DUI, hit and run and resisting arrest, News On 6 was told.
