Fall River -
Two Boston men in a stolen car were arrested after they allegedly tried to elude police Friday. One pulled out a loaded gun as a patrolman closed in on him during a foot chase, police said.
James Walker, 24, is charged with carrying a firearm without a license - second offense, firearm violation with three prior violent/drug crimes, unlawful possession of ammunition and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
Yaliek Allah-Barnes, 24, is charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle, driving after license revoked as a habitual traffic offender, reckless operation, speeding and a motor vehicle bylaw violation.
Police spokesman Sgt. Thomas Mauretti said Officers Brett Kimball and Gregory Wiley of the Special Operations Division were patrolling the area of South Main and East Main streets about 1:30 p.m. when a 2007 Dodge Charger sped by them.
After determining the car was stolen from Enterprise Rent-A-Car of Boston, the officers continued to follow the vehicle until backup arrived, Mauretti said.
Police subsequently tried to stop the auto in the Housing Authority lot on Morgan Street, but the driver ignored commands to shut off the ignition and sped out of the lot, traveling the wrong way on Third Street, where officers lost sight of the vehicle, Mauretti said.
Within minutes, Officer Wendell Burks reported the vehicle was in the area of Spring Street and Milliken Boulevard, where he said a man was running across the boulevard.
"He climbed a fence and dropped into some bushes," Mauretti said of the suspect.
Burks ordered him to stop, Mauretti continued, but he refused and allegedly pulled a handgun out of his pocket.
"Officer Burks drew his department firearm as the male jumped into a large hedge and ordered him to drop the weapon as he was held at gunpoint," Mauretti said. "The male threw the weapon about three feet away."
Officer Joshua Carreiro recovered the loaded .32-caliber Beretta pistol and Walker was arrested.
Meanwhile, Somerset, Swansea and state police stopped the Charger on westbound Interstate 195, near Exit 3. Kimball and Wiley went to that location and identified the driver, Allah-Barnes, as the same operator of the vehicle in Fall River earlier, Mauretti said.
The suspect initially refused to stop for Somerset Officer Scott Comfrey, but did stop shortly afterward and subsequently was taken into custody by Fall River police, Mauretti said.
Walker also had 14 outstanding warrants, including charges of armed robbery with a firearm, stalking, intimidating a witness, criminal harassment, threatening to commit a crime, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery and violating an abuse prevention order. Allah-Barnes had two warrants for charges of motor vehicle law violations.
Walker and Allah-Barnes will be arraigned Monday in District Court.

THIS is what belongs in the news! Shitbags causing a scene, cops from different agencies cooperating and getting the job done. Not when the Sheriff's hack warrant apprehension donation unit picks up some clown on a warrant.
