Police Arrest Burglary Suspect After Foot Chase

Police say without their helicopter high above Lexington, they may not have caught a burglary suspect.

A homeowner, who lives on Winburn Drive, says he heard someone, trying to remove his air conditioning unit on Tuesday morning. He says he yelled at the man and then called police.

Police say they were able to track the fleeing suspect from the air and chased the suspect across several streets. At one point, he ran across the interstate, to escape from police.

Police eventually arrested 18-year-old Michael C. Walls. He's been charged with criminal attempt to commit burglary, fleeing and evading and possession of cocaine. Police say Walls may be responsible for other burglaries in the Winburn area.

One officer was hurt during the chase. He was taken to the hospital to have his knee checked out.
