RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. -- A man led authorities on a chase with his wife and baby in the car in Randolph County Wednesday afternoon, according to Highway Patrol troopers on the scene.

Bobby W. Richmond, 28, of Liberty, was taken into custody.

The chase began in the northeastern part of the county when troopers tried to pull Richmond over for speeding.

Richmond wrecked into a field near N.C. 22 and Randolph Church Road, troopers said.

Troopers say Richmond fled the vehicle on foot and ran into a heavily wooded area.

About 45 minutes after Richmond ran into the woods, he was located with the assistance of a police helicopter.

Troopers said Richmond led police on a chase because he had warrants out for his arrest.

No injuries were reported.
