BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Louisiana man accused of stealing a car last month has been arrested after leading police on a chase.

The Advocate reports that Baton Rouge police responded to reports of a disturbance and spotted a pickup truck speeding away Saturday. Authorities say the vehicle failed to stop and the driver, later identified as 23-year-old Chancellar Williams, fled on foot.

An arrest report says the truck was reported stolen, and that authorities later found several items, including a marijuana cigar, while searching the vehicle.

Authorities say Williams is also accused of stealing a woman’s car and threatening to shoot into her residence if she didn’t give him the keys.

Williams faces several charges, including armed robbery. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
