A Lexington police officer suffered a leg injury when he fell chasing a suspect early Friday morning.
Officials say police stopped a car with three people inside, and one took off running. An officer chased the man behind the Creekside Apartments, between Alexandria Drive and Village Drive. As the officer climbed a fence to follow the suspect, he fell about five feet. EMS responded, treated the officer for a leg injury and took him to the hospital.
Officials did not release any information on the officer's condition.
The suspect got away.
