Driver who fled police taken into custody

Posted: Wednesday, May 20, 2009

KENAI - Alaska State Troopers say a police pursuit that ended in a crash in Kenai involved a 30-year-old Anchorage man who had a child passenger in his car at the time.

Troopers say the child was pushed out of the car driven by Robert P. Hancock after shots were fired by a Kenai police officer, but no one was struck.

Troopers say the boy is related to Hancock, who has been arrested on undisclosed charges. The child was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Megan Peters, spokeswoman for the Alaska State Troopers, said the chase began Tuesday afternoon after reports of a man driving erratically in Sterling.

The chase ended when the vehicle struck the rear of a Kenai Police car and struck a power pole.

The officer was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
