MADISON COUNTY, Ala. - A man was arrested after an overnight police chase in Madison County.

Huntsville Police Lt. Tony McElyea said STAC agents were following the driver after they saw him buy drugs in the area of Wall Triana Highway and Nick Davis Road.

A Huntsville Police officer at the scene of the arrest told WHNT News 19 the chase started in the area of Jeff Road and Capshaw Road in Madison County and ended just outside Gurley.

Madison County Sheriff's Office Deputies and Gurley Police used spike strips in front of Madison County High School on a white Ford SUV, according to authorities.

Additionally, McElyea said STAC agents believe the man may have either thrown the drugs out the window during the chase or given them to a second driver.

As WHNT News 19 got to the scene of the arrest, our reporter saw the SUV being lifted onto a tow truck and being taken away from the scene.

The officer confirmed one man was arrested for attempting to flee and elude police.

The officer further stated more charges could possibly follow.
