Driver arrested after rampaging through US shopping centre

Driver arrested after rampaging through US shopping centre
Police have arrested a man who drove through the corridors of a suburban Chicago mall before crashing into a clothing store.
Video posted on TV station WGN's website shows the black Chevy Trailblazer driving through the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg at around 2.30pm on Friday (local time).
People can be seen running in one shaky clip, but there were no immediate reports that anyone had been struck by the SUV.

As the car goes screeching through the centre, shoppers can be heard screaming for the driver to pull over.
Witness Lateef Farooqui told CBS 2 that he was on the second floor of the mall when he saw the vehicle driving through the mall "like you would a shopping cart".
He says the SUV drove over a kiosk and then struck a Forever 21 before the driver jumped out and was captured by police.
Another video shows doors allegedly shattered by the vehicle when it entered the building.
