OGDEN -- An Ogden man led police on a short chase in a stolen car Tuesday morning.
A Utah Highway Patrol trooper noticed the car idling by the curb near 2800 South and Monroe Boulevard around 1:20 a.m. He stopped to check the registration and discovered the car had been stolen from Ogden around 6:30 Monday evening. The driver put the car in gear and sped off.
The car slid off the road a few blocks later at 1750 South and Monroe. The driver got out of the car and ran, but fell and broke his leg.
Troopers arrested Daniel Brown, 27, and took him to McKay-Dee Hospital. Brown is a parole fugitive who was considered armed and dangerous.
The vehicle was retrieved by the registered owners.
