OWENS CROSS ROADS, Ala. (WAFF) - A man who led police on a foot chase is now in custody. Friday night, New Hope Police say they saw a man driving down the road in Owens Cross Roads. They knew there was a felony warrant out for his arrest.

A New Hope police officer tried to pull over Cody Sneed but Sneed took off in his pickup truck. Police say he tried to back his vehicle into the officer’s patrol car. Sneed jumped out of his vehicle and took off on foot into a field on Hobbs Island Road near Vann Road where he disappeared into brush and trees.
