What started as a call from a Lubbock McDonalds ended with a man in handcuffs. The McDonalds at 50th and Quaker called police when a customer used a counterfeit bill. Police arrived shortly after 6:30 p.m. Thursday and the suspect took off. He led police on a foot chase, running through an apartment complex at 50th and Salem.
NewsChannel 11 spoke with the man who helped police stop the suspect. Anthony Latronica says, "The guy ran over and was jumping off roofs and I saw him head toward my kids so I told him to stop and I threw him on the ground the cops got him." Police then handcuffed the suspect.
Meanwhile, back at McDonalds, police learned the suspect was driving a stolen Ford Expedition. Inside the vehicle, they found drugs and a shotgun. The suspect is spending the night in the Lubbock County Jail, facing various charges.
