SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — A man with a misdemeanor drug warrant was arrested Sunday after leading sheriff's deputies on a brief foot chase in Poway.

It started a little after 4 p.m. when a deputy recognized the man near Palisades Drive and tried to make contact with him.

That's when the man took off into a nearby canyon.

The man was caught about a half hour later and was taken to the hospital for injuries he suffered from running through brush and scaling fences.

One deputy suffered a minor hand injury in the chase.
