A suspect who apparently tried to run over a Philadelphia police officer is under arrest.

Police were trying to pull the driver over for a traffic violation. Police say the driver took off, almost hitting an officer and the chase began.

It ended at Bridge and Langdon Streets in the city's Summerdale section early Thursday morning.

The driver jumped out of the car and was arrested after a brief foot chase.

Police say they found drugs and paraphernalia in the suspect's car.
