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.
