The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office reported that they took 27 year old Spencer Huddleston, of Glasgow, Kentucky, into their custody in the Fairhope area, according to BCSO spokesman Anthony Lowery.

The Deputy was able to locate the unoccupied Volkswagen behind a house in the Fairhope area shortly after the chase.
Lowery said that a records check on the suspect showed that Huddleston was a wanted person out of the state of Kentucky.
The records check also resulted in displaying that Huddleston was listed as a missing person from Barren County, Kentucky, in October of 2016.
In that case he had been reported missing on October 7th of 2016. Investigators in Barren County deemed that Huddleston's disappearance as an apparent drowning in a local area creek.
Law enforcement in Kentucky reported that Huddleston was wanted for multiple charges including arson, being a persistent felony offender, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana.

Lowery said Huddleston was detained into custody without further incident at that time. Huddleston was charged with attempting to elude a police officer and several other traffic offenses by the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office.
