LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Lawrence police say a brief car chase ended with the arrest of a wanted man on the University of Kansas campus.

Sgt. Trent McKinley says the chase began Monday afternoon when officers tried to stop a stolen car.

6News Lawrence reports (https://bit.ly/RjXS65 ) the pursuit lasted only three blocks before the car went through a parking lot and tried to drive down a flight of stairs on the campus. The car was impaled on the stairs and the driver fled toward Memorial Stadium.

Officers arrested a 33-year-old Lawrence resident a few minutes later. He was taken to a Lawrence hospital for an undisclosed medical issue.

McKinley says the suspect has been jailed for several crimes since 2003 and he was facing other charges when he was arrested.
