A car led police on a pursuit in downtown Richmond on New Year's Eve, hitting four cars before the driver was arrested.

The chase began when an officer stopped a car on Broad Street shortly before midnight for trying to make an illegal u-turn, according to Richmond Police. The driver then led the officer on a slow-speed pursuit hitting four cars and striking a tree and a building at Madison and Franklin streets, police said.
