Deputy Randy Rael of the Adams County Sheriff’s Office spots a speeding vehicle and tries to initiate a traffic stop. The car takes off, and a short pursuit ensues. The suspect’s vehicle goes off road a couple of times, almost crashing before finally hitting a fence and coming to a stop. The suspect flees from the vehicle on foot, and Deputy Rael gives chase. The suspect is spotted running down a hill behind an apartment complex but disappears into some tall grass. Deputy Rael along with Senior Deputy Miller hold their position near the tall grass for a few seconds until Deputy Miller spots the suspect laying down trying to hide. The suspect is taken into custody and says he ran because he had warrants. No drugs or weapons were found on the suspect or in the car.
