A Lawrence police officer was involved in a brief vehicle chase Wednesday morning that ultimately was called off by a supervisor.
Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said an officer tried to stop a vehicle at 9:48 a.m. in the 300 block of Florida Street. The officer noticed someone in the vehicle who might have an active warrant out for arrest, but the vehicle did not stop.
After a short time, officers disengaged the pursuit at the direction of a police supervisor. According to police radio traffic at the time, the pursuit ended near Ninth and Tennessee streets.
