The person who chased the van was taken to the hospital to be evaluated. Colorado Springs Police say the man will be cited for an unattended vehicle, a parking violation. The ticket will cost him $35.
As for the property damage including the fence, a mailbox and the downed tree, those issues may be a civil matter.
