New Hope Police Chief Steven Dick tells WAAY 31 that Robby Fowler, 32, was taken into custody in Grant.
Fowler faces charges of attempt to elude, resisting arrest, obstruction of justice and possibly more, Dick said.
New Hope Police have identified the suspect, but are not releasing his name at this time. Police said the suspect is a white male wearing a black wig, black top and pink shorts. Police are still looking for the suspect and said warrants for his arrest will be issued.
Multiple law enforcement agencies are searching for a suspect they said evaded officers and took off into the woods.
The pursuit started around 11 p.m. Thursday night after Owens Cross Roads Police said the driver fled after officers attempted a traffic stop for a switched tag.
A pursuit then occurred, with OCRPD backing up New Hope Police. The suspect headed onto highway old 431, and attempted to hit a Grant Police officer. A New Hope Police Officer on scene said Grant Police did shoot at the suspect's car after the suspect attempted to hit the officer. Police believe the suspect was not injured.
The pursuit led them to Paint Rock Road near the intersection of Nebo Road. That is where officers say the suspect evaded police, and headed into the woods.
At one point, OCRPD said that the suspect "could be armed as a pistol magazine [was] found in the car."
Officers were searching for the suspect with a K9 unit as of 1 a.m. Friday morning.
