Authorities on Thursday arrested a man who reportedly stole a children's bicycle and fled from officers. 

Officers patrolling the 3400 block of Portia saw the man, identified as 31-year-old Tyler J. Ball, who appeared to have stolen the bicycle. When officers tried to make contact with him, Ball reportedly fled on the bike and ignored officers repeated commands to stop. 

Officers eventually caught and arrested Ball.

Police said Ball had a small amount of meth on him. He was arrested for drug possession and obstruction of a police officer.
