Man Leads Police on Long Chase

Yakima, WA - Around two o'clock this morning police attempted to pull over a man for reckless driving...but he decided to run.  The chase began at 9th avenue and Tieton drive.  Police pursued the 26 year old male until he got to 40th and Washington Avenue, where they decided to abandon the chase because it was too dangerous.  The driver then turned back around towards police, and the chase started back up.  Spikes were laid down, and two if his tires were popped, but he continued to drive recklessly so the chase was canceled second time.  The whole incident went on for about fifteen minutes, and police eventually found his car abandoned on 7th street downtown.  Right now they do have a warrant out for his arrest, police know who he is, but they won't release his name.
