Ryan Stone, 28, had quite a Wednesday morning. A warrant for his arrest was issued after he walked out of a court hearing on March 4 and he decided to flee.
He first stole an idling SUV with a 4-year-old boy in the backseat from a gas station around 6 am, reports the Denver Post.
He then rear-ended a van after getting on the highway and hijacked that vehicle, leaving the child unharmed.
State trooper Bellaman Hee was laying down spike strips to stop Stone, when Stone hit Hee with the van, evading the spikes. Hee had surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.
Later, Stone hit another vehicle and yanked the driver out. He eventually ran a red light and collided with multiple vehicles, leaving him to run on foot until he reached a fence he couldn’t climb.
Stone has a long rap sheet dating back to 2003 which includes assault, receiving stolen property, weapons possession, flight, child abuse and drug offenses. He can now likely add charges of grand larceny and kidnapping to that.
Police believe he may have been under the influence of meth and marijuana at the time of the chase. After his arrest, he was taken to the hospital for a potential drug overdose.
