CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities say a wanted man attempted to flee pursuing officers by blending into the sea of Chicago Marathon runners.

WLS-TV (https://abc7.ws/1oaADLj ) reports police say Bryan Duffy of Chicago ran from officers Sunday after they approached him. Police say the 29-year-old man jumped into a group of marathon runners in hopes he could make an escape. But police were ultimately able to tackle and arrest Duffy.

Police say the man was carrying 10 capsules of MDMA, also known as Molly or ecstasy.

Duffy is charged with possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest. He was also charged with reckless conduct for endangering the marathon runners.

His bail is set at $10,000.
