The Lynchburg Police Department has arrested a wanted man from Appomattox after a vehicle pursuit earlier today. 
 
According to the Lynchburg Police Department, Daniel Joseph Sparrow, 37, of Appomattox, was wanted after giving a false name when LPD officers arrested him on Friday for possession of schedule I/II substance and possession of marijuana. He also had an outstanding warrant for one charge of contempt of court for failure to appear. 
 
Shortly before 2 p.m. today, an officer identified Sparrow in his vehicle while driving on McCorkle and Union Streets. The officer initiated a stop, but Sparrow accelerated away from the officer, eventually crashing on U.S. 29 near the Carter Glass Bridge and fleeing on foot. 
 
Sparrow was not injured and was taken into custody. He also is charged with two counts of identity fraud, two counts of false identification to law enforcement, driving revoked, obstruction of justice, felony hit and run, reckless driving, felony eluding, and four counts of uttering a forged document.
 
This is an ongoing investigation. No additional information has been provided.
