Police say officers on patrol near 3rd and North Clayton Streets shortly after 2 Tuesday morning spotted a green Honda Accord running a stop sign.
The cops tried to pull the car over, but the driver kept going, leading the lawmen through the Hilltop, Hedgeville and Browntown sections of the city after blowing a tire in the 100 block of Wright Street.
The driver, Ronald Davis of Wilmington, then got out of the car and ran through several yards, tossing away a gun as he went.
A police dog put the bite on Davis, and the dog's human colleagues found Davis was carrying 15 Oxycodone pills.
Davis, who can't legally have a gun, is being held at the Howard Young Prison in lieu of bail.
