Suspect hit by car while fleeing police in south Sacramento

PERRINO, MARQUIS-23.jpgA man continued running from police even after being hit by a car.

Officers attempted to stop Marquis Perrino, 23, who was riding a bicycle near Summersdale Drive and Mack Road about 5:30 p.m. Friday, according to a Sacramento Police Department report. Perrino abandoned his bike and fled, but was struck by a car while crossing the street, officers reported.

"He was able to shake off his injuries and keep running," officer Doug Morse said.

Officers eventually caught the suspect a short distance away and found marijuana packaged for distribution where Perrino had left the bike. Police took Perrino to a hospital before booking him for resisting arrest and possessing marijuana for sale.

"He didn't break any bones, but as a precaution we took him to the hospital to get him checked out," Morse said.
