COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - There was a large police presence outside of a Colorado Springs King Soopers on Wednesday as officers arrested a wanted man.

At about 2:15 p.m. police say they noticed a stolen vehicle driving into the parking lot near 19th Street and Uintah Street just northeast of Old Colorado City. Once the vehicle was confirmed stolen, more officers were called to the scene.

“The passenger exited the vehicle,” police wrote on their online crime blotter. “The driver pulled into rowed parking. Officers initiated the stop blocking the vehicle, to prevent escape. The driver still attempted to escape by [ramming] the police cars, however, this was not effective as officers had the vehicle penned. The driver would not follow commands to exit the vehicle. Additional officers responded and the driver surrendered, exiting the vehicle, taken into custody.”

The suspect was identified as Michael Denman. Denman was on parole and has a long criminal history. Past convictions include felony menacing, motor vehicle theft and drug charges. There are multiple open cases for Denman ranging from motor vehicle theft to felony menacing and suspected DUI.
