Eastpointe Police Director John McNeilance said, at around 1 a.m. Thursday, the suspected drover into the front of the business, at 9 Mile Road and Kelly, causing damage to the building.

When a police officer arrives on the scene a short time later, the driver fled the scene. After a short chase, the man was arrested on Gascony, south of 9 Mile, near his home.

A tipster to WWJ Newsradio 950 said there were dozens of police cars on the scene. McNeilance said  Roseville police were assisting Eastpointe PD.
