Bridgeport police arrested a man on Monday who is being accused of hitting two marked police vehicles with his car, and endangering his wife and child.

On Monday, police responded to a crash on Golden Hill Street.

During the investigation, a Mercedes involved in the crash fled the scene.

A detective pursued the vehicle, and about 10 minutes later the car had struck a police car on Greene Homes Drive.

The driver of the car was identified as Anthony Cameron.

After his vehicle hit the police car, it traveled another 30 feet and hit a second police car on Washington Avenue.

Police said Cameron jumped out of the vehicle and engaged several police officers in a pursuit.

He dropped his jacket during the pursuit, and when police located it they found cash and 6.4 grams of marijuana.

Cameron was finally located by police.

Inside of his vehicle were his wife Nicker Brown-Cameron and his 2-month-old baby, who was given to a family member.

Cameron was held on a $50,000 bond and was charged with risk of injury, reckless endangerment, interfering with police, reckless driving, engaging in police pursuit, operation under suspension, evading responsibility, no insurance operator, wrong way on a one way, and possession of marijuana.
