HARTFORD (WKZO) -- A 33-year-old Hartford man known to have his license suspended was spotted driving a Jeep Wrangler Sunday just after 3 p.m.

A Van Buren County Sheriff's Deputy attempted to make a traffic stop, but the driver sped away,  eventually sliding through a T-intersection and crashing his vehicle through a cattle gate before fleeing into a wooded area.  A K9 unit tracked him to a residence where the suspect tried, but failed, to steal a van in a driveway, and then found him hiding near some trees.

The suspect reportedly fought with the Deputy and the K9 before being taken into custody.  Deputies located a meth lab the suspect had fled from the vehicle with and he was taken to the Van Buren County Jail.
