SOUTHAVEN, MS -

(WMC-TV) – Several police officers are recovering after investigators say someone rammed their cruisers and led them on a two state chase.

Southaven police say they tried to pull a car over on Highway 301 around 10:30 Monday night.

But the diver had something else in mind. Instead of pulling over, the driver hit their police cars and kept going.

Leading them on a chase into South Memphis, where they spun out on Eastwind Drive.

That is where Memphis police say two men got out and ran. Both were caught, and are now in custody.

One of the men apparently had a warrant out for his arrest.

No one was hurt at that scene, and the Southaven officers' injuries are minor.
