NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ An ex-con, unlicensed tow truck driver suspected of stealing cars. An astonishing high-speed chase through the streets and onto the sidewalks of Providence and North Providence, ending with the fugitive slamming the truck into his own residence and mistakenly trying to hide in the backyard of an off-duty cop who grabbed him and held on.
Five injured law enforcement officers and numerous smashed police vehicles. A flurry of gunfire resulting in the suspectâ€™s sister receiving a flesh wound.
