GREENFIELD-- A 19-year-old man was arrested after leading police on an eventful chase that ended when he crashed into a parked vehicle.

An officer with the Greenfield Police Department discovered a stolen vehicle traveling in the 4700 block of S. 27th Street about 12:44 a.m. Tuesday. The officer attempted to stop the car when it fled northbound on 27th street, according to police.
