MARTIN COUNTY — A Miami man was taken into custody Tuesday night after a high-speed pursuit that ended with him allegedly ramming a vehicle into several patrol cars.
According to Martin County Sheriff William Snyder, Neal Bochner, 50, was chased into Martin County about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday by Port St. Lucie police officers for driving recklessly in a stolen vehicle.
Once in Martin County, sheriff’s deputies picked up the chase until Bochner used the vehicle, a white SUV, to hit two Sheriff’s Office cruisers and one Stuart police vehicle at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Kanner Highway, Snyder said.
After the crash, Bochner fought with deputies and a K-9 was released, which bit Bochner “multiple times,” Snyder said. Bochner was taken to a hospital for treatment. His condition was not available Tuesday night.
During the scuffle, the K-9 also bit one deputy in the head and another in the leg, Snyder said. Those deputies were being treated for their injuries.
No further information was available Tuesday night.
