A motorcyclist has been arrested after allegedly leading police on a chase several times before kicking an officer during his arrest. 

Officials with Metro Nashville Police said a person on a motorcycle led them on a chase several times in one night.

At one point, Metro Police Sgt. Noah Smith spotted the suspect, identified as Joshua Ols. Sgt. Smith said he turned on his lights but Ols flipped him his middle finger and took off. 

During the pursuit, the suspect got away.

Minutes later, the officer spotted him again from a Staples parking lot on Old Hickory Blvd.

At that point, Ols allegedly started driving his motorcycle in circles around the officer's car, then reportedly kicked the cruiser and fled.    

Once back-up was called, they went to Ols' house. 

He allegedly tried to head-butt Sgt. Smith while they were handcuffing him. As he was being put in the car, police said Ols kicked the officer, striking him in the upper thigh.

Police arrested the suspect for assault and for driving on a suspended license.
