A man who fled police and led them on an abbreviated high speed chase Saturday has been taken into custody.
Saturday around 3:00 p.m. an officer on general patrol observed a black car on Lacroix Street and recognized the driver as having his driving privileges suspended. The officer attempted a traffic stop in the area of Grand Avenue and Woods Street however the man accelerated at a high rate of speed and failed to stop. The driver fled from the officer and the pursuit was terminated on Croydon Avenue.
