TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) – A shoplifting call leads to a brief chase, an accident and a police officer being treated at a local hospital.

Tupelo Police Department’s Chuck McDougal tells WTVA that it began with a shoplifting report at the WalMart on North Gloster around 4 p.m.

When police go there, the suspect left in a vehicle and police pursued.

They pulled back from the chase because of traffic.

The car turned on Barnes Crossing Road where another officer responding was coming through the intersection and the suspect rammed the police car.

The offender was taken into custody.

A six-year-old child was in the vehicle and has been taken to the hospital for observation.

Officers are also being checked, but there is believed to be no serious injuries.

Tupelo P.D. detectives and the Lee County Sheriff’s Department are investigating.
