CRUISER CAM: Fleeing driver crashes, ending pursuit in Harrison Twp.

HARRISON TWP. — A deputy’s cruiser was rammed in a driveway off Webster Street near Needmore Road leading to a pursuit that ended in a crash at Needmore and Wagner Ford roads last week.

Alexander Kordalis, 41, was indicted by a grand jury Friday on charges of failure to comply, obstructing official business and resisting arrest in connection to the incident.

News Center 7 has obtained cruiser camera footage through a public records request that showed the crash that ended the pursuit.

The pursuit happened around 5:15 a.m. Aug. 17 after police were in the area of the 2700 block of Armstrong Lane for an alarm.

Deputies spotted a pickup stopped in the road on Webster Street near Armstrong and said it appeared to be “suspicious,” according to an incident report. Deputies said there had been multiple thefts reported in the area in recent months.

The sheriff’s office followed the truck as it pulled into a driveway and after the deputy activated his lights, the driver backed the pickup into the deputy’s cruiser.

The truck sped off from the scene and was pursued by deputies. Kordalis tried to run from the vehicle after the crash, according to the incident report.

“As we neared a tree line parallel with Needmore Road, I discharged my X-26 taser,” a deputy wrote in the report. Kordalis fell to the ground and was able to be arrested with no injuries.

He is currently being held in the Montgomery County Jail.
