Two Billings Police officers lead a suspect that ran away from the Yellowstone County Sheriff's department in a stolen car, foreground, and on foot through Riverfront Park on Saturday morning.

A man was arrested Saturday morning after leading law enforcement on a chase in a stolen car through the Josephine Crossing subdivision ending in Riverfront Park.

Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office deputies stopped a car in a trailer park along Mullowney Lane with four passengers around 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Two of the passengers got out and ran away, and the driver started to drive away from law enforcement.

Deputies and Billings police officers followed the car into the Josephine Crossing subdivision. At the east end of the residential area, the driver left the road and drove onto a walking path along Norm's Island, across South Billings Boulevard and into Riverfront Park, according to Sheriff's Office Sgt. Joel Ketch.
