BROWNSBURG, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say an Indianapolis man was taken into custody after leading police on a chase with two young children in his car.

The chase began about 2 a.m. in Brownsburg, outside Indianapolis, when the driver wouldn’t pull over for a Hendricks County police officer. WANE’s sister station, WISH-TV, reports the fleeing man’s car struck a fence and a Brownsburg officer’s vehicle hit a house.

The man fled on foot with the children, triggering a search involving a police helicopter. A 3-year-old boy was found alone and uninjured in a field about 4:30 a.m. Police took the man into custody about 6 a.m. after someone reported seeing a man carrying a small child covered in blood. The child was taken to a hospital for treatment of head and leg injuries.
