Baker led officers to 11th and Lewis where his vehicle clipped the front end of a northbound car.

Baker continued on 11th, with his vehicle finally coming to a stop on fence post at 11th and Quaker.

Baker and an unidentified passenger ran away, but police officers were able to capture them.

Baker was booked into jail on a number of complaints including reckless driving and resisting arrest.

Police officers also recovered a .38-caliber handgun they say was thrown out of the SUV during the chase.
