Chase by car and foot ends with drug arrest

NEWARK, Del.: Delaware State Police said a suspected drug dealer tried to flee from troopers in his vehicle, then on foot, and was finally taken into custody after being shot with a stun gun. Police said a trooper pulled over Marcus Taylor on Friday in Newark for failing to wear a seat belt. Police said Taylor, 23, gave a false name, then sped off, hitting four cars during his escape. Troopers caught up with him, and Taylor left his car and ran, only to be shot with a stun gun and taken into custody. Taylor's passenger, identified as Christopher Lyles, 23, remained in the car and was arrested without incident. Police said they found two vials of PCP in Taylor's car. He faces charges including trafficking PCP and possession with the intent to distribute. Taylor was in custody yesterday after failing to post $35,000 bail.
