Memphis police piece together afternoon police chase

Christopher Clark was bloodied and in police custody, but still playing it up for the cameras.

Clark says, "I love you baby for always and forever, forever and a day baby."

His wild ride was over after a crime spree investigators say led him from Alabama to the streets of Memphis.

Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin says, "This was a very very dangerous individual."

According to Memphis police, Clark escaped with another inmate from an Alabama work-release program Monday and authorities believe Clark then killed that inmate and headed for Tennessee.

Memphis officers were tipped off and staked out his girlfriend's house on Zelda where they spotted him Thursday afternoon.

Maj. Bill Walsh with Memphis Police says, "The suspect then fled, he carjacked 2 different vehicles, he took one subject kidnapped one subject...home invasion, weapons involved."

Chopper 5 caught up with Clark as he sped through Memphis in a carjacked blue Hyundai....eventually pulling into this gas station and carjacking another person and attempting to get away before a swarm of officers took him down.

"This subject said he wasn't going to be taken alive and he wasn't going back to prison," continues Walsh. 

But now facing multiple charges in Memphis AND Alabama,  it looks like prison is exactly where he'll end up.
