Cop car rammed; suspect arrested

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A man who allegedly rammed a vehicle into an Albuquerque police car and then barricaded himself in a home now is in custody.

Albuquerque police said 23-year-old Jonathan Zottnieck climbed out of a window and was arrested Tuesday afternoon behind the home on Ellen Court NE.

Police said he’s facing multiple charges, including suspicion of aggravated assault on a peace officer and residential burglary.

Police originally responded to a call about a suspicious situation near Richmond and Indian School about 11:20 a.m.

One man at the scene was carrying a handful of what appeared to be stripped copper.

Police said the suspect intentionally rammed into the officer’s vehicle and ran.
