Officers then engaged in a foot chase with the suspect and he was apprehended in the 7200 block of Bundy Road.
Massey was charged with multiple traffic violations including reckless operation of a motor vehicle, criminal trespass, resisting an officer, aggravated flight from an officer and felon in possession of a firearm. Further investigation revealed that Massey was on parole for an armed robbery charge. Officers also confiscated a .40 caliber firearm.
