Police arrested a 21-year-old Logan man early Thursday morning after he tried to run from officers during a traffic stop. Forrest Rodriguez was booked into the Cache County Jail, where he is being held without bail.

North Park Police Chief Kim Hawkes said officers made a traffic stop near 2600 N 200 E in North Logan, around 2:30 a.m. Rodriguez allegedly gave police a false name and date of birth. He then tried to exit the vehicle and flee on foot.

The suspect jumped a fence into the backyard of a house. An officer chased Rodriguez, finding him a short time later attempting to hide. Police also found a loaded firearm near where he was hiding.

State attorneys charged Rodriguez with possession of a firearm, a third-degree felony, and 14 other misdemeanors. Court records show a warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to appear in court, for driving under the influence of alcohol.
