CHICO, Calif. - An armed convicted felon has been arrested after he allegedly ran away from police during a traffic stop near the Chico State campus, early Saturday morning, said Chico police. 

According to the Chico Police Department, an officer tried to pull over an older model SUV, holding two men, near Salem and West Third Streets just after midnight.

Authorities said it took awhile before the car stopped and once it did, the passenger, known as Vincent Honeycutt, 27, jumped off and ran north towards Chico State.

Luckily University police detained Honeycutt, who was carrying a loaded .357 revolver at the time of the foot chase, said Chico police.

Records showed that Honeycutt was a convicted felon and was barred from possessing firearms, he was later arrested for several gun-related charges.

The driver who remained in the SUV while Honeycutt ran on foot from police, was identified as Victor Hinojosa, 19, of Hamilton City.
