    City short 8 police cars, not enough for officers to use, after chase

    The city is short on squad cars after a man led police on a destructive chase and crashed his van into 10 cruisers, officials said.

    By the time officers stopped Jeffrey Bean in Minnesota, eight squad cars from Grand Forks and two from East Grand Forks, Minn., were damaged, Grand Forks Police Sgt. Roger Pohlman said.

    Damage to the Grand Forks squad cars totaled more than $26,000 and the department doesn't have enough vehicles now for all officers on duty, he said.

    "Right now, our day shift has enough vehicles. Our night shifts are doubling up," Pohlman said.

    Bean, 37, was charged Friday in Minnesota with assault, damage to property, fleeing police officers in a motor vehicle, refusal to submit to tests for driving while intoxicated and driving while restricted.

    Authorities said additional charges are pending in North Dakota.

    Bean was being held in Polk County jail on a $25,000 cash or $250,000 surety bond.



    Another reason why 8-10 officers shouldn't be chasing one vehicle?

    Don't know, big guy, but ya got to think, if he was being that destructive to police vehicles, maybe they were just trying to get him secure for safety.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
