A simple traffic stop leads to a foot chase involving several different agencies.

Police say an officer tried to stop a man near St. Mary's Hospital when the man got out of his car and ran all the way to Community Hospital. That’s when Community Hospital pushed its panic button and more law enforcement arrived.

21-year-old C.J. Tucker was arrested there and taken to the Mesa County Jail.

He is facing two charges of second degree assault, obstructing an officer and resisting arrest.
