SAN DIEGO – Police chased a man who intentionally rammed an alleged stolen car into a Harbor Police vehicle early Tuesday morning before arresting him, authorities said.

Harbor police officers attempted to pull the driver for expired license plate tags over shortly before 5:40 a.m. near North Harbor Drive and Scott Street but the driver rammed into a patrol vehicle and drove off, according to Harbor Police.

The driver led officers on a pursuit eastbound on Harbor Drive and south past Barrio Logan before running over a spike strip laid down by officers at Cesar Chavez Parkway.

SkyFOX video showed a white sedan, with smoke billowing out from under the hood, inching along Harbor Drive near Cesar Chavez Parkway before the driver finally stopped the car.

They were in a standoff with the driver until he surrendered at 6:30 a.m.

The driver was identified by police as 32-year-old Andrew Sigsbee, who was wanted for a felony warrant. Sigsbee was arrested on suspicion of felony evasion and assault with a deadly weapon.

The veteran officer in the vehicle that was rammed suffered minor injuries.
