LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man who was found inside a Jefferson County Public School overnight.
According to an arrest report, officers were called to Iroquois High School on Taylor Blvd., near Southern Pkwy., shortly after 3 a.m. Tuesday after someone reported a break-in.
When officers arrived, they set up a perimeter around the school, and were informed that a man was still inside the building carrying property around in his hands. Police say they could hear a JCPS school resource officer yelling from the west side entrance.
That's when, police say, 24-year-old Michael G. Spencer was seen running westbound across Taylor Blvd.
Police yelled for Spencer to stop, but he refused, according to the arrest report. Officers allegedly pursued him down Haskins Avenue, through an alley, then through area backyards.
Police say they eventually caught up with Spencer and forced him to the ground.
He was arrested and charged with burglary, fleeing or evading police and resisting arrest, according to the arrest report.
