Summaryhttp://Corey Bland, 38, celebrated his birthday by stealing a 2005 Audi at gunpoint, police said. Hours later, when a state trooper spotted him driving the vehicle, he sped away, sparking a wild chase that spanned two counties and involved three police agencies. When it was over, two hours later, Bland was hospitalized in critical condition after ramming several police cruisers and nearly running over a group of officers who shot him when he backed up the stolen Audi and tried to mow them down a second time, police said. http://nj1015.com/new-jersey-attorney-general-charges-pending-in-police-involved-shooting/ http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/12/lengthy_police_chase_ends_with.html http://www.nj.gov/oag/newsreleases11/pr20111227a.html
