SPD: Suspects crash during police chase, arrested

Posted: Updated:

A man and woman are behind bars after leading police on a high speed chase before crashing in the Stoner Hill neighborhood Friday morning.

Shreveport police say just after midnight, an officer attempted to stop a car for a missing headlight on Shreveport Barksdale Highway near Camilla Drive.  That's when the driver sped off.

During the chase, the front left  tire on the suspect's car blew out causing it to crash into a curb on Clyde Fant Parkway and Stoner Avenue. Police say a female driver and a male passenger jumped out of the car and ran away. Police caught and arrested the duo after a short foot chase.

Both were charged with felony flight.
