LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence police say a brief car chase ended with the arrest of a wanted man on the University of Kansas campus.
Sgt. Trent McKinley says the chase began Monday afternoon when officers tried to stop a stolen car.
6News Lawrence reports the pursuit lasted only three blocks before the car went through a parking lot and tried to drive down a flight of stairs on the campus. The car was impaled on the stairs and the driver fled toward Memorial Stadium.
Officers arrested a 33-year-old Lawrence resident a few minutes later. He was taken to a Lawrence hospital for an undisclosed medical issue.
McKinley says the suspect has been jailed for several crimes since 2003 and he was facing other charges when he was arrested.
