A 32-year-old man was taken into custody early Saturday on suspicion of evading police after he took off after a routine traffic violation, police said.

The pursuit began at about 5:25 a.m. at Central and Oliver and ended in the 800 block of south Broadview, said Sgt. John Hoofer.

During the pursuit, the man was throwing items out the window of his vehicle, Hoofer said.

Some of those items appear to be drugs, police said.

He was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail.
