SALT LAKE CITY - A man is in custody after an early morning police chase through Salt Lake City.

Officials said they spotted a suspect riding a motorcycle that was reported stolen.

When an officer tried to pull over the suspect, he sped off and ended up crashing the bullet bike.

Police said the man ran to a family member's house near 1300 S. and 300 W.

According to officials, the suspect kicked in the back door and the homeowners told him to get out.

The suspect left the house and didn't listen to officers so they sent a K9 after him.

He still wasn't cooperative so the K9 bit him on the leg.

The man was treated for minor injures.
