Lacy was arrested about 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, after being identified as the person who allegedly, while driving a stolen vehicle, evaded several attempts by police to initiate a traffic stop, struck two police vehicles, and led officers on a chase through multiple police districts, police said.

Officers were eventually able to stop the vehicle and after a brief attempt to resist arrest, he was placed into custody, police said.

Lacy is due in bond court Thursday.
