As the car was being checked by an officer, a woman approached with a man holding a baton, police said.
With the cruiser’s emergency lights off, it’s believed the two were unaware they were heading for the police.
Once the officer noticed the baton, he placed the man under arrest without incident.
It was later discovered that the man was linked to a number of crimes in the area.
