Mobile Police arrested a man after he tried to get away from officers Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators said they stopped the man after they saw him driving on Government Boulevard in a car with a switched license plate. Officers said he then tried to get away and took off running.

After a short foot chase, he was taken into custody on Birchwood Drive. An ambulance was called after officers feared the man was suffering from heat exhaustion. He was treated at the scene and put into the back of a police car.

Officers also believe the man is under the influence. His name has not been released.
