A Corpus Christi Police Officer was injured during the arrest of a 24-year-old man who caused two vehicle crashes.

Corpus Christi Police Officers were dispatched to the Santa Fuego night club located at 3205 Ayers Street for a disturbance. The officers heard a crash in the parking lot after they had entered the building. The officers went outside and saw a blue 1999 Ford Explorer had backed into another car in the parking lot. The Explorer then nearly struck several pedestrians when it sped out of the parking lot.

Police Officers got into their patrol cars and followed the Explorer. The Explorer accelerated from patrol cars through several streets until the operator of the Explorer, 24-year-old Armando Sanchez jumped out of the Explorer while it was in motion.

The Explorer traveled until it struck a tree in front of 1254 York Avenue. Sanchez ran north on York until Police Officers caught up with him. Sanchez fought with police and caused one officer to suffer a laceration to the Police Officers forehead and a broken bone in the Police Officers right hand.

Sanchez was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation and then delivered to the city detention center. Sanchez was arrested for Evading Arrest in a vehicle, a 3rd degree felony, and for resisting arrest, a Class A misdemeanor.
