WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) -- A Woodbridge man fleeing from a bail bondsman was struck by a car after running into traffic on Interstate 95, concluding a wild chase in which a police dog was bitten by a groundhog.

Prince William County Police said a bail bondsman tried to take 22-year-old Reginald Davis into custody Wednesday evening at a Woodbridge motel.

Police say Davis rammed the bondsman's car before fleeing on foot and hiding beneath an overpass.

A police dog unit joined the search, during which a groundhog bit the search dog, Titan. An officer shot the groundhog, which is being tested for rabies.

Police say Titan continued the search and found Davis, who ran onto I-95 and was struck by a car before being arrested.

Davis was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
