ROCK ISLAND, Ill. — Rock Island County police apprehended the suspect of a reported domestic battery after he tried to flee from police and crashed.

According to a news release from the Rock Island County Sheriff's Office, police responded to a report of an in-progress domestic battery just before 11:30 a.m. at the Rock River Town Homes complex in Carbon Cliff.

Police reportedly saw a suspect leaving the area in a car, and a deputy attempted to perform a traffic stop. The Rock Island County Sheriff's Office did not name or describe the suspect in its release.

The suspect then fled from the traffic stop but crashed the car shortly after. He then led deputies on a brief foot chase but was quickly caught and arrested.

Police did say that prior to the incident, the suspect already had two outstanding warrants — one for failure to appear on a domestic battery charge from Rock Island County and another from Muscatine County, Iowa for drug and eluding charges. The warrants reached a total bond of $75,000.

The incident remains under investigation, and no further information is currently available.
