GREENSBORO, N.C. — A police chase stemming from a narcotics investigation ended Monday evening with a car crash in Greensboro.

The pursuit began around 8 p.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Dorothy Brown Street and ended at Franklin Boulevard and Holts Chapel Road.

Christopher Lamont Stimpson, 42, faces four charges following the chase.

Stimpson failed to heed emergency equipment, initiating a pursuit. As the fleeing subject traveled on Holts Chapel Road, a detective in an unmarked vehicle attempted a precision immobilization technique to terminate the pursuit.

Stimpson managed to maneuver away from the detective, entered the front yard at 522 Franklin Boulevard and then drove his vehicle towards two police cars, striking both of them. One of the officers used his vehicle to disrupt Stimpson’s assault.

Two officers and Stimpson sustained minor injuries as a result of the incident. They were all treated and released from local hospitals.

Stimpson is charged with two counts of assault on a government official with a deadly weapon, felony fleeing to elude to avoid arrest and possession of marijuana. He is confined in the Greensboro Jail Central under a $120,000 secured bond.
