According to a news release, a police officer was responding to an emergency when that officer's lights allegedly caused a driver to "become paranoid and attempt to flee."
Police allege the man began driving dangerously, which spurred the officer to try to stop the vehicle.
A short chase ensued and the driver ended up going over a spike belt that had been laid out near a local landfill.
The driver soon crashed his car and ran away. Police caught up with him, with the help of a canine team.
The 30-year-old man was charged with dangerous driving, flight from police and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
