Sammy Linebaugh reporting Police catch up with Utah's Most Wanted during a busy night in Salt Lake City.

Police received a tip about Gregory Warren's whereabouts at around 10 last night. Two hours later, they were able to make an arrest.

About 4200 South Highland Drive proved to be the end of the road for Utah's Most Wanted fugitive, Gregory Warren. He was wanted for parole violations and a slew of warrants ranging from assault on a prisoner to drug charges.

Last night, police got information about where Warren might be. They spotted his car near Highland Drive, attempted to pull him over, but he took off. Eventually, he bailed from the vehicle and took off running. An officer and police dog were right on his tail.

After being cornered by police, Warren still refused to cooperate.

Lt. Melody Gray/ Salt Lake City Police Dept. "Mr. Warren was non-compliant with our officers, and therefore the canine took the action needed to, and Mr. Warren was bitten by the dog."

Warren was bit in the back of his arm. He was treated at St. Marks Hospital and is on his way to the Salt Lake County Jail.

While searching him during the arrest, officers found some methamphetamine.

Warren will most likely face additional drug charges now on top of his previous warrants. Police say they're happy to have him off the streets and back behind bars. And, they say they're grateful for help from the community in this case.

His arrest was a collaborative effort by the Salt Lake City police department and the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office.
