An Arizona couple were behind bars late Wednesday after having bolted from a Cottonwood Heights traffic stop in a stolen mini-van before being nabbed in Taylorsville.
Cottonwood Heights police Sgt. Mark Askerlund said an officer had pulled over the man and woman about 11:30 a.m. near Union Park Avenue and 1200 East for what appeared to be an expired license plate tab.
"The officer talked to the driver, but things weren't adding up. While the officer went back [to his cruiser] to check on the vehicle, the guy took off, in the process running over another officer's foot," Askerlund said.
