Police: Man followed woman, drove wrong way in Scottsdale

- Police say a man was arrested after he continuously rear-ended another driver and struck another vehicle while leading officers on a wrong-way pursuit in Scottsdale.

Scottsdale police say 25-year-old Jowen Moses was arrested after he allegedly followed another driver and rear-ended her multiple times while she was on the phone with a 911 operator near Scottsdale and Thomas Roads on November 10.

Several minutes later, an officer observed Moses' vehicle and tried to pull him over. Moses pulled into a nearby parking lot, made a U-turn and sped away at a high rate of speed. Moses then began driving the wrong way in the westbound lanes of Thomas Road.
