Huntsville Police say they’ve arrested a man after an overnight police chase.

The chase took place along South Triana Boulevard and ended on A Cleaner Way just after one Thursday morning. Police told WAAY 31 A Cleaner Way is a dead end road, and the driver drove the car through a field where he eventually crashed the car and took off running. Police set up a perimeter and brought in police dogs to help with the search.

It was just 3:30 AM when police found the driver hiding in the woods and were able to arrest him. There is no word on how this all started.

Huntsville Police are investigating.
