MARIETTA, Georgia — A police chase that began over a stolen car spanned two counties north of Atlanta before ending in Marietta.

WSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1yTqmCE ) the chase started when Woodstock police confronted the suspect, Christopher Becker, over a stolen car. Authorities said Becker tried to run over the officers, injuring one of them.

Police chased Becker through Cherokee County and into Cobb County, where he ditched the car he was driving. He was arrested after a brief foot chase.

Officials said Becker will be charged with aggravated assault on a police officer. It was not clear Saturday whether he had a defense attorney.
