One man was charged, and an arrest warrant was issued for a second after an officer noticed a vehicle pull out against the flow of traffic on Avondale Street. Patrolman Steve Adkins followed the vehicle as it turned left onto Illinois Street, traveling about 20 feet where the driver and passenger both jumped out and began running. The vehicle then coasted backward, striking the cruiser. Adkins exited the cruiser and ordered the men to stop, but they failed to comply, with the driver running up Illinois and the passenger running past the cruiser onto Avondale Street. The passenger, Dacious D. Cole, 18, no address listed, was located by Adkins on Minerva Street and charged with obstructing official business. Detectives issued a warrant for the driver, Javen Call, no age or address listed, for felony theft of an automobile.
