Shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday, Foot rolled through a stop sign on San Andreas Avenue in Atascadero. An officer conducted a traffic stop but noticed something suspicious and called for backup.

As a second officer arrived and approached Foot’s vehicle, the Nevada man left his two passengers behind and took off running. Officers detained the passengers, who refused to answer questions.

Foot slipped out of sight, and police set up a perimeter around the neighborhood. After about an hour, the K9s managed to find Foot in a nearby creek bed. Foot still refused to leave the creek bed, but he was soon arrested.

Authorities will extradite Foot to Nevada.

Nice to get some work in for the police doggies, good boy.

Thank you, Officers, another great job from our Law Enforcement to keep the citizens safe. Be safe out there and really, a sincere THANK YOU for your dedicated work during these difficult times!

A heel with no sole.

I guess Atascadero lends a hand in returning a Foot to Nevada.

He tried to escape on Foot when his arch rivals tried to get him to toe the line.
