(KSL News) -- Dressed in a hot-pink shirt with police hot on his trail, a man with several warrants tries his best to avoid the inevitable.

That incident was one of several that kept police busy throughout Salt Lake. A foot chase started when police tried to find a man wanted for fraud. When they tried to serve a warrant, he took off. He even ran through somebody's house and out the backyard. They chased him almost five blocks.

Cops had to use search dogs to track the man down and arrest him. The man's arrest warrant was for 90-thousand dollars.

About an hour later police went Sugarhouse Park to break up a fight. Witnesses say about 20 people started scuffling when one man pulled a gun and threatened to shoot. Police are looking for that man and made no arrests.

Meantime, a robber was caught in Memory Grove. Neighbors called police to report a transient camp. When police began checking warrants the squatters took off on foot.

Lt. Steve Cheever, Salt Lake City Police Dept.: “They actually blazed a trail through the bushes and the trees, tumbling and rolling as they came.”

One man with a warrant was arrested and hauled off to jail.
