LITCHFIELD -- A Litchfield man allegedly led a sheriff's deputy on a short chase after a traffic stop.

Twenty-six-year-old Andrew Dmytruk initially stopped for the deputy and was identified.  He then drove away from the traffic stop and the deputy gave chase.  As Dmytruk approached another officer who was waiting for the pursuit to pass by, he pulled over and was arrested.

The pursuit lasted approximately two miles.
