Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A wild chase over the Blatnik Bridge Thursday morning ended in the arrest of a suspected drug dealer.

Authorities had probable cause to arrest the 23-year-old Datione Warren, also known as "Raccs", for heroin sales, as well as a search warrant to search him and his vehicle.

When police attempted to arrest Warren for heroin sales, they say he drove off headed toward Duluth. Police say he drove around marked and unmarked squads through the lawn and out on to Hammond Avenue.
