Police: Car chases instead of guns over the weekend

Plainfielders caught a break from gangsta shootouts and shootings this past weekend, but the Police Division still had its hands full, though with high-speed car chases instead.

Friday evening, State Police reportedly pulled a car over in Scotch Plains and found the driver to have outstanding warrants and traffic violations. The driver sped away, almost hitting a Trooper, and was joined in the chase by Plainfield Police Division once the car crossed Terrill Road and East Front Street. Though the driver got away, authorities can ID him (how dumb was that?).

Sunday night, detectives from Plainfield's Narcotics Squad pursued a drug dealer who attempted to evade a bust -- through five towns, ending in a crash into a parked car. The suspect was apprehended; no injuries reported.
