A suspect in an officer-involved hit-and-run is under arrest. CSPD says Joshua McInnis, 20, will face multiple charges.

A Colorado Springs Motorcycle Officer was trying to pull McInnis over for a routine traffic stop near 21st and Colorado when the officer was struck by McInnis' green Toyota.

According to police, McInnis sped away after striking the officer.

The officer's only injuries were described as minor shin bruises.

Thanks to a tip, officers were able to find McInnis at Twin Oaks Drive, off of Dublin and Academy just before noon. He is being charged with hit and run, careless driving, eluding and drivers license violations because his license is currently suspended.

Police say that McInnis' photo will likely not be available until about 8:00 p.m.
