Man arrested after fleeing police

A 24-year-old Constantine man was arrested after he led police on a pursuit last weekend.
State police attempted to stop a car at 6:40 p.m. Saturday on Featherstone Road, near Constantine Road. The driver of the suspect vehicle, however, fled at a high rate of speed. The driver eventually pulled into a private driveway and fled on foot.
The trooper pursued the suspect on foot, through back yards, over fences and through an open field. The suspect gave up as the trooper closed in on him.
He was arrested for driving on a suspended license, resisting and obstructing a police officer, and an outstanding warrant. The driver was also arrested in connection with a breaking-and-entering incident being investigated by state police.
Troopers returned to the residence where the suspect vehicle was left. The homeowner was contacted about the whereabouts of the passenger in the suspect vehicle. Troopers learned that the homeowner had a warrant and took the homeowner into custody as well.
