ORIGINAL STORY: The Bismarck Police Department is looking for a man who struck multiple cars and an officer Wednesday afternoon.

Police say they were attempting to arrest 20-year-old Mardell Mariner on outstanding warrants.

Police found Mariner near the 1100 block of West Turnpike Avenue where he ran from police to his vehicle.

As Mariner drove off, he hit an officer and three law enforcement vehicles. The officer sustained minor injuries.

Mariner is driving a light blue 2000′s model Chrysler 300 with a large black stripe down the center.
