MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (WHDH) — A police chase came to an end in Marlborough early Tuesday evening and police said the driver was taken into custody.

Police said the chase began at the Outback Steakhouse in Auburn, where suspect Marqus Mitchell was allegedly dealing drugs in the parking lot. When officers approached Mitchell and tried to take him into custody, he allegedly became aggressive.

He then allegedly got out of his car, holding a gun and pointing it at officers before dropping it. He was then taken into custody. No one was seriously injured in the chase.

Police believe Mitchell was high on narcotics.
