Police had to chase down a man spotted by a homeowner running through a neighbour's yard at about 10 p.m. Tuesday in Juniper.
When confronted he threw rocks at the resident. He then fled vehicle — almost hitting the homeowner — and by foot until he was tracked down 45 minutes later by officers and a police dog.
He was arrested without incident while on foot on Highway 1.
The man faces charges of dangerous driving, refusing to provide a breath sample, and assault.
