PARIS, TX-- A routine traffic stop in Paris turned into a foot chase late Friday night.

Police Chief Bob Hundley says 26-year old Christopher Williams, of Powderly, was pulled over in the 2500 block of North Main around 10 P.M.

Williams reportedly gave a false name, and as officers were investigating he fled on foot, but was arrested a short time later.

Police found he had an outstanding warrant out of Travis County for injuring a child. Williams was also charged with evading arrest and possession of marijuana.
