COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) -

A driver has been arrested following a police pursuit that spanned three different localities.

State Police tells us around 2:30 p.m. Saturday troopers attempted to stop a car on the Boulevard in Colonial Heights, but they say the driver kept going onto Woods Edge Road in Chesterfield and hopped onto I-95. They say the chase continued onto Chippenham Parkway until the man got off on the Hopkins Road exit.

With the assistance of Richmond Police, the pursuit ended in a neighborhood off Hull Street in Richmond. Troopers say the driver attempted to flee on foot, but was caught a short time later. A female passenger stayed inside the vehicle and was taken into custody.

The driver was arrested on outstanding warrants and now faces charges including felony eluding and driving on a suspended license. We are told he is being held at the Chesterfield County Jail.The investigation is ongoing.
