(KSL News) -- Several agencies teamed up overnight to catch a suspect who refused to give up.

A Utah Highway Patrol trooper attempted to make a stop on I-15 after following what he perceived was an "impaired driver."

When they pulled over, the suspect hopped out of his car and took off running.

The trooper called for backup, and the K-9 units were able to quickly find and apprehend the suspect.
