A Colorado man faces a slew of charges after he allegedly stole a patrol car while intoxicated and showed up to a call for domestic violence.

Police say Jeremiah James Taylor broke into an unstaffed Park County Sheriff's substation early Monday morning and stole a 2013 Dodge Durango. 

Taylor, 33, then drove the car to nearby Teller County after officials broadcast a domestic violence incident. 

He was arrested more than two hours later after he led police on 110mph chase, crashed the Durango and fled into the woods.


Deputies found him in the brush armed with a knife, according to the incident report obtained by DailyMail.com. A confrontation ensued, prompting officers to fire shots and deploy a taser.

Taylor was apprehended and hospitalized with self-inflicted knife wounds. He was later hit with eight charges including aggravated motor vehicle theft.  
 

Police say Taylor arrived at the location of the domestic violence call on Monday after hearing it broadcast on the Teller County police channel shortly before 3.30am.

The residents told KDVR he walked up them, appearing drunk, identified himself as a deputy and asked: 'Where's the old man that's going to shoot someone?'

Sheriff's office deputies arrived at the home, located miles from where the patrol car had been stolen, around 3.40am and saw the vehicle heading down the driveway towards them.

The deputies ordered the driver to stop, but Taylor sped off at a 'high rate of speed.' 

Park County Sheriff Tom McGraw, recalling the incident to the TV station, said he was fearful of a chase. 

'That was one of my biggest concerns,' he said. 'That we were going to have a high-speed pursuit with a law enforcement vehicle crashing into an innocent citizen.

Taylor was spotted again around 5.25am heading westbound on Highway 24 and a pursuit ensued.

Taylor reportedly topped speeds of 110mph before crashing the car and made several traffic violations, such as driving over the median and not obeying traffic signals.

Deputies found him in the woods about 200 yards from the crashed Durango. 

They ordered Taylor to show his hands, alleging he did not comply and instead pulled out a knife.

Officers ordered him to drop his weapon but Taylor refused, resulting in the tasing, shootout and ultimately, his arrest. No officers were injured during the incident. 

Taylor has been charged with aggravated motor vehicle theft, vehicular eluding, impersonating a peace officer, obstruction, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment, second-degree burglary and reckless driving.

The suspect was also being investigated for several other crimes that occurred in the area ahead of the patrol car theft in Park County.

Additionally, Taylor was on probation for menacing, theft and DUI at the time of the incident.

 

Don't tase me bro!

Good thing for him he's white, or we would have heard about another innocent black man being shot.

That story sounds like a heck of a lot of fun, up until the part about the tasing and shooting, which I didn't care for.
