A man was arrested Tuesday after leading authorities on a three-mile pursuit along westbound Interstate 94 in Detroit, according to Michigan State Police.

State police “attempted to stop him for a traffic violation,” MSP Lt. Calvin Hart said of the chase, which began around I-94 and Chalmers. “He came to a stop in the area of Van Dyke and I-94, where he exited his vehicle and jumped the wall and ran across the eastbound lanes.”

The suspect fled into the neighborhood south of I-94, where deputies tracked him to a nearby home. He was discovered hiding under the front porch, Hart said.

“They were able to take him into custody at that point, without incident,” Hart said. “The suspect had multiple warrants out of the tether unit, so he probably broke a tether and was on probation.”

The man was treated at the scene for minor scratches to his face, sustained by fleeing through bushes, Hart said. He then was transported to jail where he remained pending charges.
