INDIANAPOLIS - A man was arrested early Thursday morning after leading officers on a chase in a stolen car and cutting a traffic-light pole in half in a crash.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said just after 6:45 a.m., someone driving a stolen car began to lead police on a chase on the south side.
Police said a woman had called in Thursday morning to report that the man, her ex-boyfriend, had tried to "firebomb" his her car by putting a rag in her gas tank and lighting it on fire.
As police followed the man in the car (stolen from Beech Grove), officers said it crashed at the intersection of Shelby Street and Troy Avenue, hitting a utility pole and traffic signal, essentially destroying the pole.
The car then crashed in a grassy lot near the intersection and burst into flames. Officers were able to pull him out safely.
The man was later identified as Jordan Smith.
