HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Two people were taken into police custody after a chase ended on North Memorial Parkway.

Huntsville Police say the pursuit started near Haven Inn after they tried to stop the driver for an improper turn.

Officers deployed spike strips near I-565 and University. Huntsville police say the male driver swerved around the barrier and nearly hit an officer.

The driver led police to a home near the Alabama A&M campus on Memorial Parkway before the chase finally ended.

Investigators found what appeared to be methamphetamine and needles in car but police say the field test proved inconclusive.

Police arrested the driver and charged him with two felony probation revocation warrants, two counts of reckless endangerment, drug paraphernalia, and attempting to flee and elude. More charges could be issued for narrowly missing the officer.

A female passenger was released from custody at the hospital after police say she told them she was experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
