A shoplifting incident in Sevierville led to a police chase Friday morning.

Officers responded to a call from the Nike Outlet just before 11 a.m. that three men fled the store with bags full of unpaid merchandise.

Police saw the suspects' vehicle driving recklessly on the Parkway. At one point an officer, who was standing on a sidewalk along the Parkway, had to get out of the way as the vehilce jumped the curb toward him.

An officer was eventually able to spin the suspect vehicle out on Highway 66. The three suspects ran out of the vehicle into a wooded area near Echota Resorts.

Authorities captured all three after a brief search.
