It happened around 11:30 Monday night at the intersection of South Hebron and Powell, near Washington Avenue. That's where police say they pursued 41-year-old Paul Hein, Junior, after a routine traffic stop. Authorities say Hein lost control of his vehicle, crashed into a light pole and took off on foot.
Offices say meth precursors were found in the backseat of the vehicle. Hein was found a short time later hiding in a tree a few blocks away. He was taken to a nearby hospital.
Hein now faces charges of dealing meth.
