Car thief leads police on 'Grand Theft Auto' -type chase

- Some crazy video of a suspected car thief crashing with police in Mount Clemens on Nov. 12.

Take a look at the dash cam it shows officers racing towards the suspect in a 1999 Saturn in the parking lot of Clinton Place Apartments. But the suspect doesn't stop, even as another officer points a gun at him.
