High-speed chase

Two men were arrested after leading an officer on a high-speed, multi-collision chase through the streets of Red Hook — and then a subsequent foot chase through Brooklyn Heights on Jan. 22.

Cops say that two officers were in an unmarked patrol car at around 4 pm when they observed a driver speeding north through Red Hook. The officers gave chase and the driver careened into several parked cars, before smashing his car into the squad car near the corner of Richards and Pioneer streets.

When the bad guys’ car no longer functioned, the two men leaped out and ran into Brooklyn Heights, where they dropped narcotics along the way, police said. Officers finally apprehended them at Remsen Street, and found that one man still had marijuana on him.

The arrested men, both 20, were charged with assault and drug crimes.
