GLENDALE — A Glendale police officer sustained minor injuries early Monday after crashing into two parked cars while responding to the scene where a man had tried to flee from police, officials said.
The officer, responding to calls for backup, had been traveling with lights and siren activated on Broadway and had entered the intersection at Glendale Avenue, where another motorist failed to stop. The officer was forced to swerve, hitting the parked cars.
Soon after the crash, a Glendale police dog tracked down Nicholas Romero, 25, hiding in the attic of a gas station building on Broadway and Eagledale Avenue. He was arrested on suspicion of having three to four pounds of marijuana in a stolen BMW.
