A routine traffic stop leads to a foot pursuit and finally ends in the arrest of a wanted man.

Police say an officer attempted a traffic stop around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 3800 block of north Chestnut Street. The passenger then allegedly jumped out of the moving car before the vehicle came to a stop.

Officer Bauer and his K-9 Rico located the suspect, identified as Orlando Alvarez, under a bridge nearby. Alvarez was wanted on several felony and misdemeanor warrants.

Alvarez was taken into custody and transported to Memorial Hospital and treated for injuries he sustained as a result from his contact with K-9. He has been charged with Obstructing a Police Officer and booked into CJC on his warrants.
