BOUNTIFUL — An Idaho man was arrested early Sunday following a police chase and a standoff with a SWAT team.
About 2:30 a.m., Bountiful police received multiple calls reporting a truck driving recklessly and attempting to ram another vehicle. The driver of the truck then collided with another vehicle near 2600 S. Main in Bountiful and fled, according to a statement from Bountiful Assistant Police Chief Dave Edwards.
Officers located the vehicle near 1500 S. Main and attempted to stop the vehicle. Instead, the driver hit another vehicle, then “rammed a police vehicle” and fled again, according to the statement.
“The suspected attempted to ram two additional police vehicles and was pursued to the area of Bountiful Boulevard and 400 South, where he entered a cul-de-sac and a standoff ensued,” Edwards said.
The man refused commands and refused to surrender, police said. The South Davis Metro SWAT team was called to the scene and the man was eventually taken into custody.
Cory Adams, 51, of Shoshone, Idaho, was booked into Davis County Jail for investigation of aggravated assault, fleeing, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and disorderly conduct.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Bountiful police at 801-298-6000.
