According to authorities, they were made aware of a suspicious vehicle at the Shell gas station on the corner of Germantown Pike and South Gettysburg Avenue just before 2 a.m.

Following a foot pursuit, authorities lost sight of the driver, prompting a K-9 unit to be requested to the scene.

The man, whose name was not released, was found hiding in a tree in a nearby wooded area a short time later.

Medics were called to the scene for the suspect, who was reportedly having chest pain.
