RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Riverside police say a man threatened to blow himself up, rammed two cars in a McDonald's drive-thru, led police on a chase and fled his burning van in a crime spree that ended when a police dog caught him.
Police told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that drivers got out of the way and customers and employees locked themselves in the restaurant during the 4:30 p.m. crime spree Sunday.
Police identified the man as 24-year-old Hunter Rolf of Washington state.
After a short chase, smoke started coming from the van and police fire a "less-than-lethal round" into the van.
Rolf ran as the van was consumed by fire. Caught by a canine, he was arrested just after 5 p.m.
