MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police are looking for a car whose driver tried to run down officers attempting to arrest him Thursday afternoon, May 10th near 67th and Fond du Lac.

Police say officers observed a hand-to-hand drug transaction and moved in to make an arrest when it appeared the car’s driver was going to get out of the vehicle, but instead jumped back in and attempted to run down the officers.

Officers began a pursuit onto Highway 45, but lost the vehicle around 116th and Green Tree Road.

Officers are looking for a blue Volkswagen Jetta with a broken rear window on the driver’s side.
