A man was arrested Wednesday after police say he stole a car and rammed it into a patrol vehicle in Gwinnett County.
Kalvin Robinson, 21, faces several charges, including two counts of aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer, felony obstruction, felony fleeing and felony theft by receiving.

At around 6 p.m., officers were called to a strip mall off Lawrenceville Highway in Tucker. They found a bleeding man who said he had been dragged by his car as it was stolen, according to police.

Not long after, officers found the vehicle at a Quality Inn off East Park Place Boulevard in Stone Mountain — along with Robinson. The suspect drove away, kickstarting a chase that ended at a Chevron less than a mile away when he rammed the stolen car into a patrol car, police said.

Bodycam footage shows Robinson running away from police across several lanes of traffic after the impact. K-9s and an aviation unit were called to help find him in a search that would last an hour and a half, police said.

Robinson was eventually found at the same Quality Inn as before, according to police. He had changed his shorts and “hastily tried cutting his hair to alter his appearance,” police said.

The man allegedly resisted arrest and had a gun in his pocket, but he was taken into custody safely, according to police.

Robinson was booked in Gwinnett County Jail, where he faces more charges from separate arrest warrants. Those include theft by deception, second-degree forgery, theft by shoplifting, family violence battery and robbery, police said.
