The Killeen Police Department is searching for a man after a brief car chase.
Officers observed a man removing tires from a car parked on the side of the road at Highway 195 and Splawn Ranch on Thursday morning.
When one of the officers was approaching the man, he got in a white car and fled southbound on 195, toward FM-2484.
The officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused to stop. The driver led officers on a short chase, which came to a stop in a ditch.
The suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction.
