What started out as a fight with security ended with a suspect crashing six times as he fled police in Minneapolis.

The chain reaction incident unfolded across Sunday afternoon and evening in south Minneapolis, with the suspect getting into the altercation with security in the 2900 block of Chicago Avenue South around 4:20 p.m.

The suspect fled the area in a vehicle, but then was involved in a "property damage" crash at Cedar Avenue and Lake Street, and another one a short time later on East Lake Street and 13th.

He continued to flee, once again crashing at Cedar and Lake, before carjacking a vehicle, telling the driver and passenger to get out.

This incident was caught on camera and shared on Twitter (offensive language warning).

After stealing the car, the suspect went south on Cedar, crashing into three more vehicles at 38th and Cedar, before fleeing on foot.

He was then arrested by Minneapolis police and taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

At this stage, no charges have been filed, with police not identifying the suspect.
