CORPUS CHRISTI - A wanted gang member was arrested Thursday night after a brief police chase that ended with a nasty wreck.
It began with a disturbance involving a possible abduction.
An officer responding to the disturbance spotted the suspect's vehicle on Everhart at McArdle.
The officer tried to pull over the car, but the driver sped off, and made it just south of SPID before smashing into a truck.
The driver then tried to flee on foot, but was captured in a nearby parking lot.
No one was seriously injured in the wreck, but an officer was slightly hurt while chasing down the driver on foot.
It turns out no one was abducted after all, but the driver was arrested on charges related to the pursuit.
