WATERTOWN, MA (WHDH) - A traffic stop leads to a massive search in Watertown.

Investigators say the 28-year-old suspect took off during a routine traffic stop.

The state police air wing and k-9 units were called in.

Someone spotted him soaking wet on Main Street and that is where officers arrested him.

He will face a judge in Waltham on Wednesday.
