Seattle police arrested an armed man who fled from officers on a scooter last month, and it was all caught on body camera. 

On June 15, officers were driving when they located a felony warrant suspect near Yale Avenue North in the South Lake Union neighborhood. 

After multiple attempts to stop the man, who was on a scooter, they got out of their patrol cars and chased him on foot. 

As the man tried to get away, he crashed his scooter and was taken into custody.
