PASADENA — An armed man wanted on an out­standing drug war­rant was taken into cus­tody following a foot pur­suit, where no one was in­jured, a police lieutenant said Saturday.

Officers were dispatched a little after 4:35 p.m. Fri­day to contact Bran­don Green, 29, on an out­stand­ing drug warrant. When officers approached the location on foot, Green took off running, said Pasadena Police Lt. Jessie Carrillo.

“During the foot chase, the suspect produced a handgun which led an of­fic­er to fire shots,” Car­ril­lo said.

“Though uninjured, the suspect fell to the ground and was taken into custody without incident.”

A firearm was recovered at the scene and no injuries were reported, he said.

Green, a resident of Pas­a­dena, was arrested on suspicion of assault on a peace officer and the out­stand­ing warrant. He was being held in lieu of $126,000 bail.

Pasadena police asked any­one with information re­garding the incident to call them at 626-744-4241.
