News4's Pat Collins explains how a wanted man was discovered and led officers on a wild chase that included a Metrobus in a failed effort to get away.
A man wanted on charges in Maryland led police on a wild chase through downtown D.C. Tuesday - all while running without a shoe on.
The suspect, who was already facing trial on unrelated charges, was going through security at a building on Indiana Avenue.
When officers tried to arrest him on a fugitive warrant in Maryland, he sprinted away toward 6th Street and the Archives without one of his shoes. He then boarded a Metrobus, but eight blocks later at 14th and H Streets, police converged, anticipating his arrival.
He then jumped off the bus and led police on a chase, caught on camera by a Czechoslovakian TV news crew.
Within a few blocks, the man was detained by officers.
