The incident happened on Monday night around 8:00 near Park Lane Southeast and 22nd Avenue.  A witness says he saw a man driving a silver SUV at a high rate of speed. The vehicle then swerved and the witness claims he was almost run over.  Police say the witness then got into his car and tried to chase the SUV down. He eventually catches up to him, but claims the SUV started “side-swiping” his car.
