A police pursuit in Jasper ends with two men in jail.

We're told officers tried to pull over a car for speeding and seatbelt violations Saturday evening on 15th Street near the power plant.
Officers say the vehicle sped away, before turning into a nearby business' parking lot. That's when, authorities say, Danny and John Rogers got out of the car and ran in opposite directions.

Officials say Danny was arrested after a short foot pursuit.
John was later found in a nearby field where he was also taken into custody.
