Incident occurred near I-10, De Zavala Rd on Monday morning

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police have arrested a man they say rammed a police cruiser multiple times Monday morning.

Officers were called to Interstate 10 and De Zavala Road around 6:45 a.m. for someone asleep inside a vehicle.

The first officer to arrive at the scene parked in front of the vehicle before knocking on the driver's window. That's when, police said, the driver woke up and drove into the police cruiser before speeding off, officials said.

Police said following a short chase the suspect surrendered in a parking lot.
