A car chase through Anniston Thursday afternoon involved at least 15 law enforcement officials, according to Anniston police. No one was injured.

Anniston police early this afternoon could not say where the chase began or how long it lasted, but patrol officers, investigators, deputies with the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office and officials with the Calhoun-Cleburne County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force were involved.

The chase ended with the arrest of Arthur McCluney, 43, of Anniston, at the corner of F Street and South Leighton Avenue.

McCluney is accused of attempting to elude police officers, running a stop sign, and driving with a suspended license, Anniston police Capt. Allen George said. According to George, McCluney also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest from Bibb County for a probation violation.

McCluney took off after a patrol officer attempted to pull over the red Chevy pickup truck he was driving for running a stop sign, according to police.

According to George, McCluney led the officers on a chase through southeastern Anniston, including South Quintard, Christine and Leighton avenues.

McCluney was in the Anniston City Jail on Thursday afternoon, according to a jail worker. Bond was set at $1,100; he is scheduled to appear in court March 19.
