TEKONSHA, MI (WTVB) - A sheriff's deputy and a Michigan State Police trooper were injured last night in Tekonsha Township at the end of pursuit incident that started after the larceny of money was reported from a tavern in the village of Parma in Jackson County. The suspect is a 29-year old Lansing man, who is believed to have stolen a car from his hometown before leading police on the chase.
Once entering into Calhoun County westbound on M-60, deputies laid down stop sticks to puncture the tires of the fleeing vehicle. It was able to swerve around the sticks, continuing through the village of Homer. More sticks were used in Tekonsha Township and the suspect eventually stopped in the area of M-60 and Old US 27. However, he refused to exit the vehicle and while struggling, his vehicle began to roll, running over one of the deputies' legs, pinning it under the tire. He was treated and released from Oaklawn hospital. The trooper was treated at the scene for minor injuries by Marshall Ambulance. The suspect is lodged in the Calhoun County jail.
