A Washington man faces several charges after leading officers on a car chase and a foot chase.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says a City of Washington police officer called in to dispatch at about 1:20 a.m. Sunday that he was involved in a pursuit of a vehicle in the city limits.

The vehicle chase ended at 803 West Madison Street and a foot chase began.

The officer arrested 24-year-old Joseph Nicholas Hoback a short time later.

One officer suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from a local hospital.

Hoback is charged with second-offense operating while intoxicated, eluding, second-degree criminal mischief, failure to obey stop sign, reckless and careless driving, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle and interference with official acts causing bodily injury.
