Police: Drunk man takes stolen car on joyride

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A man allegedly stole his friend's car after a night of drinking downtown and took it on a joyride, leaving a wake of damage in his path.

Police say suspect Kashaun Antonio, 21, hit two parked cars, then a light pole a quarter-mile away, and finally ditched the car and tried making a run for it.

Officers were investigating the damaged cars just after 1 a.m. when they got word that the suspect had hit the light pole and was trying to flee. A short time later, a man matching the suspect description saw the officers and sprinted off. Officers chased after and tried using a taser, which proved useless and the pursuit continued. Other officers finally found the suspect and took him into custody.

Antonio is facing charges of motor vehicle theft, DUI and multiple traffic violations including careless driving and hit-and-run.
