NORTH BRUNSWICK — A New Brunswick man was arrested last month after refusing to pull over his car and leading cops on a wild chase that ended with him crashing into a building, police said.

Police said they tried to pull over the SUV at 8:03 p.m. Feb. 24 at the Walmart shopping center on Route 1.

Behind the wheel was 51-year-old Timothy Williams, who had been arrested by township police a month earlier on a burglary charge.

Instead of stopping, Williams led police on chase through the shopping center and went off the road and through wooden fence on private property, police said.
