INDIANAPOLIS - One person was arrested after a police chase on the city’s east side Friday afternoon.
Quincy Archer, 23, was arrested after leading police on a chase and fighting with an officer, officials with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.
Police said they tried to pull Archer over for a traffic stop near East 25th and North Olney streets, but he refused to pull over and eventually ran into an officer’s car after a chase.
Eventually police stopped Archer near Ridgewood Drive and Wellington Avenue, but he got out of the vehicle with a gun and fought with an officer who had his gun drawn.
The fight caused the officer’s weapon to accidentally go off. Nobody was hurt, but officers did have to use a stun gun on Archer before arresting him.
Police said they found cocaine and drug paraphernalia in Archer’s vehicle as well as a stolen handgun that Archer dropped while running.
When asked why he didn’t stop, Archer told police he did not want to go back to jail.
Archer was preliminarily charged with possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, dealing and possession of cocaine, criminal recklessness, leaving the scene of an accident, theft and driving while suspended with a prior conviction.
