Police Nab Suspect After Chase

A man who led police on a chase through the streets of Lexington early Wednesday morning is now in jail.

Police say an officer saw the suspect, Ronnie Mitchell, 25, and knew Mitchell didn't have a license.

Mitchell wouldn't pull over for officers then drove down East Loudon Avenue and onto Warfield Place.

Police say he abandoned the car there and ran into Castlewood Park, where police tracked him down after about ten minutes.

Investigators want to question Mitchell about a home invasion weeks ago at the Coolavin Apartments on West 6th Street.

For now, Mitchell is charged with driving without a license and fleeing and evading.
