A high-speed chase through Dublin city yesterday resulted in the perpetrator being arrested and a member of the Gardai being hospitalized.
The incident unfolded at around 8pm last night. A stolen van failed to stop at a checkpoint in Ronanstown. Gardai gave chase and a 22-year-old man was arrested when the vehicle finally came to a halt on Patrick Street.
An officer sustained leg injuries during the chase and was taken to the Mater Hospital. He has since been released.
The driver of the stolen vehicle is currently held at Clondalkin Garda Station.
