2 Behind Bars After Leading Police on Foot Chase

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Two men are behind bars after leading police on a foot chase Monday evening.

While on patrol, police watched an alleged drug transaction between two men near Genesee and Seymour. Once over, the two suspects got into a car and drove away. Police followed and made a traffic stop--that's when Dushawn Ezekiel Lee, 23, of Lansing and Damien Nathon Reid, 26, also of Lansing, fled on foot.

Police noticed Lee was carrying a gun. He tried to enter a campus building at Lansing Community College, but couldn't. He resisted arrest, but was ultimately placed into custody.

Officers lost the trail for Reid in the 700 block of Seymour, so K-9 assistance was called. The K-9 unit was able to find him hiding in the back yard of a residence in that area. He was arrested without issue.

A third person was also inside the vehicle at the time it was pulled over, but they were not charged and was released.

Lee faces a felony weapons charge for carrying concealed, a firearms charge for possession by a felon, a felony firearms charge, resisting a police officer and operating a vehicle with a revoked license. Lee was also charged as a second offense habitual offender is being held on $20,000 bond.

Reid faces one felony count of controlled substance delivery and/or manufacture. He was charged as a fourth offense habitual offender and is being held on $15,000 bond.

LCC went into a temporary lockdown as the foot chase began, but was re-opened after both men were apprehended.

Both men are due back in court Monday.
