A car pullover turned into a foot chase late Saturday night near the intersection of Naismith Drive and 23rd Street.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl, around 11 p.m., a Lawrence police officer spotted a white 1994 Ford she recognized. After checking and confirming a 40-year-old man in the truck was wanted under multiple warrants, the officer pulled over the truck at Burger King, 1301 West 23rd St.
The man got out of the car and fled to avoid arrest, and a foot chase ensued. Multiple police units responded and drove to the area.
Hadl said the officer had recognized the suspect, who was wanted for arrest under multiple warrants. Police searched for the individual, but the suspect successfully got away.
At least one adult and a child were still with the vehicle.
