Officers are searching by air and ground near Denham Springs for a man that led State Police on a high-speed chase this afternoon.
Perry Rushing with the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office said deputies are assisting troopers in the search for a man that fled from State Police when they tried to pull him over for a traffic violation on Interstate 12.
The chase went into south Denham Springs, and the man bailed out of his vehicle at a trailer park near the Bass Pro Shop. Authorities are using helicopters and dogs to continue searching for the man, who is described as a white male with several tattoos that was last seen wearing a white shirt and green shorts.
