BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A police chase that spanned two parishes ended with the arrest of a 32-year-old man.

According to the probable cause report, the chase started on Friday, April 20 in Livingston Parish. A deputy with the Livingston Parish Sheriff's office was chasing a vehicle that was being driven by Christopher Adkins.

Adkins allegedly made his way from Livingston to the Greenwell Springs area around Monterrey Boulevard.

"[Adkins] drove his vehicle across crowded parking lots, veered between lanes and sped, endangering the citizens of Baton Rouge," a deputy with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office wrote in the report.

It wasn't until Adkins drove his vehicle down a dead end road around Airline Highway that the chase ended.

Adkins was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of fleeing to elude police and reckless operation of a vehicle. The report states he is facing additional charges in Livingston Parish.
