GLEN BURNIE, md. — Two Anne Arundel County Police officers were injured during a Saturday morning car pursuit in Glen Burnie.

Around 7:15 a.m., police were called to a home in the 8000 block of Ritchie Highway to investigate an unknown vehicle parked in a resident’s driveway.

Police found a driver and passenger asleep inside the car. Officers awakened the driver and noticed a handgun inside the car.

After brief verbal interaction with police, the suspect drove off with police giving chase.

The car briefly stopped, at which point the officers attempted to reason with the driver before he pulled off again, somehow leaving two officers injured.

During the incident, a 9 mm handgun was thrown from the car which was later recovered on the side of Ritchie Highway.

A short distance away the suspect's vehicle became disabled, leading both suspects to bail out of the car. Both were ultimately arrested.

Police identified the driver as Christopher Lamar Bryant, 39, and the passenger as 56-year-old David Holmes Jr.

Suspected PCP was also located inside the vehicle.

The two injured officers were taken to an area hospital and sustained non-life threatening injuries. One was admitted and the other was treated and released.
