A man was arrested by Middletown police for ramming his girlfriend's car and chasing her with his own following an argument.

Police said Thomas Anderson met the victim in Middletown on Tuesday morning.

Anderson and the woman got into an argument, which police said led to him ramming his girlfriend's car several times.

Police said he caused $1,500 worth of damage to the car.

The victim fled and dialed 911 while attempting to drive her vehicle away from Anderson to avoid a crash.

Police said Anderson was driving in such a way that he disregarded the victim's and other motorists' safety.

They said his pursuit of the victim went down several streets in Middletown and into Portland.

Portland police said they tried to pull Anderson over, but he evaded.

Police said he finally crashed before fleeing on foot.

He was found later in the morning and taken into custody.

Police said Anderson later called the victim several times, including to tell her that she "better kill herself before he does."

The victim told police that she believed he would have followed through with the threat.

Anderson was charged with several charges, including first-degree harassment, first-degree assault and first-degree criminal mischief.

He was held on a $100,000 bond and faced a judge Tuesday morning.
