3 hospitalized after pursuit through Jersey City; suspect attempts to disarm cops: police

JERSEY CITY -- Three people were hospitalized and a police officer was nearly stripped of his gun after a car pursuit through the south side of the city, police said. 

At about 1 p.m. on Friday, police officers from the Street Crimes Unit spotted a silver Chevy Impala -- known to authorities as being involved in multiple drug transactions -- leaving a gas station on Kennedy Boulevard and Danforth Avenue, according to a police report. 

The officers followed the vehicle down Danforth Avenue. The car soon pulled over and Brandon Walsh, 28, of Bayonne, got inside the car with the driver who was later identified as Eric "Big E" Milligan, 30, of West Side Avenue, police said. 

Police ordered the car to stop, but Milligan sped off at "a high rate of speed" heading east on Danforth Avenue. Once Milligan approached Garfield Avenue, police said the 30-year-old threw small bags out the window, though the officers did not recover any evidence, the report states. 

A South District lieutenant "terminated the pursuit" after the car passed Chapel Avenue, police said.

Moments later, Milligan struck a red Ford Explorer, causing it to spin and hit a fire hydrant. Milligan then hit a red Honda stopped at a traffic light before his car came to a stop, the report states. 

Milligan attempted to flee the scene on foot and then struggled with police officers as they were arresting him. Police said Milligan tried to grab one of the officers' weapons from his belt. Another officer grabbed his baton and "began to strike (Milligan) on his right arm." Several other officers were called to assist in the arrest, police said. 

Walsh was ordered out of the smoking car and placed under arrest. The Bayonne man told police he was looking to buy drugs from Milligan and asked the driver to stop several times during the pursuit. Walsh was charged with loitering to commit a CDS offense, the report states. 

Police recovered 19 vials of cocaine, one bag of heroin, five cellphones, and nearly $1,000 in cash, police said. 

The driver of the Ford Explorer, a 19-year-old Jersey City woman, was brought to the hospital with a broken clavicle. The Honda's driver, a 26-year-old Jersey City man, was treated at the scene by EMTs from Jersey City Medical Center, an off-duty EMT who saw the crash, and a member of the United Rescue first response team, the report states. 

Walsh and Milligan were both hospitalized with injuries, police said. 

Milligan was charged with five counts of possession drugs, tampering with physical evidence, resisting arrest, eluding, disarming a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault on a police officer, and assault by auto.
