BOUNTIFUL, Utah, Sept. 12, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Bountiful Police officers responded at 2:32 a.m. Sunday on multiple calls of a truck driving dangerously and attempting to ram another vehicle.

“Multiple callers reported a truck driving recklessly and attempting to ram a car,” a statement from the Bountiful Police Department says. “The suspect truck then collided with a vehicle near 2600 S. Main St. and left the scene. Bountiful officers located the vehicle and attempted a traffic stop near 1500 S. Main St.

“The suspect vehicle collided with a second car, rammed a police vehicle and fled. The suspect attempted to ram two additional police vehicles and was pursued to an area of Bountiful Boulevard and 400 South where he entered a cul-de-sac and a standoff ensued.”

The driver — later identified as 51-year-old Cory Adams from Shoshone, Idaho — refused law enforcement commands to surrender, the statement says. The South Davis Metro SWAT Team responded. Officers ultimately were able to take the suspect into custody.

Police booked Adams on charges of aggravated assault, fleeing, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident (three counts) and disorderly conduct, the statement says.

This investigation remains open, the police statement says. Police ask anyone with information related to this crime to contact Bountiful Police detectives at 801-298-6000.
