THE BRONX - Police fired shots at a minivan during a high-speed chase in the Bronx that ended with the driver in handcuffs Tuesday.

According to authorities, 39-year-old Jason Henry failed to yield to a pedestrian near Morris Park Avenue and White Plains Road at around 5 p.m., and then took off as officers approached, hitting a parked car and driving onto a sidewalk. 

Cops say the van drove toward officers at one point, and that's when shots were fired, but Henry still didn't stop until he crashed into a telephone pole on Wyatt Street. 

After searching the 2005 black Chrysler, 100 oxycodone pills were discovered.  

Henry is now facing a dozen charges, including resisting arrest, criminal possession of narcotics, operating a vehicle while impaired by drugs and vehicular assault. 

No one was hurt.
