Baltimore County police arrested a 23-year-old Parkville man yesterday afternoon after a chase that began when he allegedly hit an officer with his car while fleeing a traffic stop and later carjacked and wrecked another vehicle.

The incident began about 1: 30 p.m. at the intersection of Reisterstown Road and Kenmar Avenue, when Officer Jason Sutton pulled the man over during a traffic stop. When the officer asked the man to turn off the car, the man put the car into reverse, backed up and aimed the vehicle toward the officer, said Cpl. Vickie Warehime, a county police spokeswoman.

Sutton said the car struck him between the knees and chest, but that he suffered no apparent injuries.

Later, he allegedly carjacked a truck. At the 1100 block of Greenspring Valley Road, the stolen truck was wrecked. Police say the man, who has not been formally charged, attempted to break into a nearby house but was arrested.
