MIAMI (WSVN) - A foot chase across downtown Miami ended with a Taser takedown in front of the FTX Arena.
According to City of Miami Police, the subject was first spotted running from a CVS Pharmacy near Northeast Eighth Street and Second Avenue, just before 12:30 p.m., Thursday.
Investigators said the man had briefly abducted a woman in the area and was armed with a knife.
