A man is in custody north of Edmonton after he allegedly rammed a police cruiser with a tractor to get away from the R-C-M-P.

Mounties say they arrested a woman Saturday afternoon after getting word about two people in a stolen vehicle northwest of Barrhead, but a man she was with escaped into the bush and stole a tractor in a field.
