TACOMA, Wash. -- A man was arrested early Monday after ramming a number of police cars and other parked vehicles in Puyallup, according to the Tacoma Police Department.

According to police, a woman called 911 shortly after 2:45 a.m., saying her ex-friend was ramming her parked car and trying to break out her car windows in the 300 block of South Ninth Street in Tacoma.

The suspect drove off in his Chevy Tahoe, and officers from multiple police departments attempted to stop him without success, according to police.

The suspect drove over a spike strip, giving the Tahoe a flat tire, and he eventually stopped near 104th Street East and Fruitland Avenue East in Puyallup.

According to police, the suspect then rammed a number of police cars, and officers fired one shot at the suspect without hitting him.

The suspect attempted to run away from officers and was caught by a police dog, according to police. He was treated for a dog bite, arrested and booked into Pierce County Jail.

The victim who originally called 911 would only answer basic questions from officers, and police are still investigating what started the incident.
