LCSO Involved in Car Chase with Suspect

A Leon County man is accused of leading deputies on a 20-minute chase Tuesday night, a chase that ended with police dogs snarling at his front door.

Twenty-two-year-old Christopher Anderson was arrested at his home off County Road 12 late Monday night.

Investigators say he took off when a deputy tried to stop him for a broken headlight and proceeded to do battle with a woman in his car.

LT Silas Lewis of LCSO says, "The black female attempted to get out of the vehicle on several different occasions and the black male appeared to be trying to stop her from getting out of the vehicle, and the black male struck the black female several times."

Reports say Anderson finally bailed out of the car and ran to his home on Silver Branch Drive where police dogs tracked him down. He faces charges of battery, fleeing and eluding and drunk driving among others.

The young woman was not seriously hurt.
