DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

A chase in Decatur ends with a man getting arrested at his own home and losing his truck.

Investigators said an off-duty police officer called dispatch because they thought the man was driving drunk. When an officer hit the blue lights, the man refused to stop.

The chase went for several blocks through neighborhoods in southeast Decatur.

Police said the suspect eventually jumped out of his truck and ran to his house in the 1500 block of Tower Street. That's where police arrested him, then had his truck impounded.
