When officers tried to stop the man, he allegedly proceeded to drive through heavy traffic and onto a sidewalk, nearly hitting dozens of pedestrians, before striking seven stopped cars.

The driver was arrested, as well as the three other occupants in the vehicle.

A suspect identified as 25-year-old Corey Lane is facing four charges, including dangerous operation of a vehicle, driving while suspended, using an unauthorized plate, possession of a weapon and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

Audrey Humphreys, 18, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

The remaining occupants were released. The charges have not been proven in court.
