A Clearfield man led state police on a car chase before being apprehended on foot late Wednesday night in Clearfield County.
Police said that Kevin Joseph Beish Jr., 29, was stopped for several traffic violations at 11:05 p.m. near the Sanborn intersection of state Route 153.
Rather than cooperating with police, however, Beish took off and sped down the road. A mile down Route 153, Beish crashed his vehicle into a guardrail and trees.
He left the vehicle and ran toward a wooded swamp. Several troopers were able to catch him, police said.
