Police say the driver was sitting in his car in the parking lot. An officer pulled up behind the driver to see what he was doing.

The driver then backed into the police cruiser and drove away.

He led police on a chase up to Monument Circle before getting back onto Pennsylvania Street and heading south.

Officers say they repeatedly asked him to stop and pull over, but the driver continued.

They also say he never drove over 25 miles an hour, he stopped at red lights, and he used turn signals.

After turning back onto South Street, one IMPD officer used a pit maneuver to turn the car and end the chase.
