Car Crashes Into Volleyball Court After Chase



    (Published Friday, Feb. 22, 2013)

    A police chase in Arlington ended up in court -- a volleyball court, that is.

    Arlington police attempted to pull over a vehicle, but after the car did not stop for officers, police pursued the car down Pioneer Parkway until the car drove over the curb and into the Ace Volleyball Center.

    The car ran over the curb and concrete parking lot markers of the indoor volleyball center before it slammed through the building and ended up on one of the courts inside the building.

    The owner of the volleyball center, Michael Siska, said the man driving the vehicle actually got out of the car and wandered around the building for some time, apparently looking for an escape route.

    Police sent in K9 units to help apprehend the man for evading arrest.

    A woman passenger was taken to the hospital to be checked out after the crash.

    Siska said the facility was scheduled to hold a volleyball tournament Friday night with 300 local girls which will now have to be canceled as the damage is repaired.

    There is also an adult volleyball tournament scheduled for this weekend. Siska hopes the damage will be fixed quickly so the facility can get back to business as quickly as possible.

    Siska had a sense of humor about the incident, commenting that the couple had VIP court-side seats to upcoming volleyball events.
