Another officer started pursuing them after trying to arrest one the boys for distribution of narcotics. The pursuit had travelled from Pennsauken, through Camden, and ended on Oakland Avenue in Audubon. Patrolman Bowman collapsed after putting the juvenile driver into his patrol car following a vehicle pursuit and foot pursuit.
