Huntsville Police found themselves in a short chase last night: first in vehicles, and then on foot.
Just after midnight officers made a traffic stop on Highway 72 near Meridian Street. When the officer asked the driver for his license, the motorist took off, and the officers soon followed.
The chase lasted less than a block. That’s when the driver turned right onto Boswell Drive, lost control, went through a yard and hit a vehicle before slamming into a planter.
The driver then got out and ran away. Huntsville Police brought in a K-9 unit, but were unable to find the suspect.
Huntsville Police are still investigating the incident.
