Warrant out for alleged cop beater

Police officials issued an arrest warrant yesterday for Daniel Giddings, 27, for injuring two Highway Patrol officers in an incident earlier this week.

Giddings led the cops on a car chase through North Philly at about 1 p.m. Wednesday when he was stopped for a traffic violation. The car chase eventually turned into an old-fashioned foot chase, which ended with Giddings escaping after he sent two cops to the hospital with neck and back injuries.

Giddings is known to hang around 25th Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue, 55th and Chew Avenue, Griscom Street near Arrott and 66th Street near Malvern Avenue. He has a tattoo that reads "RIP MACK" on his left bicep, and "Theresa" written across his right bicep. Tipsters are asked to call Central Detectives at 215-686-3047.
