A man was arrested after he allegedly rammed an unmarked police car driven by a detective from the Leavenworth Police Department, a police official said.

The incident was reported around 4 p.m. Tuesday in Leavenworth. The suspect, a 35-year-old Topeka man, is believed to have been intoxicated at the time.

The detective had left the Justice Center, which is the location of the Leavenworth Police Department headquarters.

She observed a vehicle driven by the suspect. The car reportedly was being driven erratically as it traveled south on Fourth Street. The vehicle reportedly was weaving in and out of lanes and nearly struck other vehicles, according to Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens.

The detective notified police dispatchers about the vehicle and followed the car.

The suspect reportedly stopped in the area of Logan and First streets. He got out of the vehicle and urinated, according to Kitchens.

The detective parked her vehicle near the suspect’s car and was waiting for on-duty officers to arrive on the scene.

The man returned to his vehicle. The detective was going out of her car to prevent the man from driving away. But the suspect allegedly rammed the detective’s vehicle while she was still inside of her unmarked car.

Kitchens said the detective put her vehicle in reverse, but the suspect allegedly rammed the car again.

The chief said police believe the suspect intentionally rammed the detective’s car.

It is not clear if the suspect realized the other vehicle was an unmarked police car. The detective apparently did not have the opportunity to identify herself as a law enforcement officer.

The suspect reportedly drove away from the scene, traveling to the grounds of the Eisenhower VA Medical Center. He was taken into custody by members of the VA Police Department.

Kitchens said the suspect was arrested for allegations of aggravated battery, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and possession of stolen property. The license tag on the suspect’s vehicle had been reported stolen.

Kitchens said the suspect also allegedly was driving with a suspended license and he reportedly was transporting an open container of alcohol.

The detective suffered minor injuries during the collisions. She was treated at a local hospital.
