A crazy police chase started on the highway and ended at the antelope exhibit at the St. Louis Zoo.
Police say they tried to pull a car over at 64 and Kingshighway last night around 11:30. The driver sped off, but crashed at the Hampton exit. That is when the man ran into Forest Park and headed for the zoo. Officers caught up to the man as he was trying climb into the antelope enclosure and a park ranger was forced to use a stun gun to stop the man.
The name of the man has not been released, pending charges.

ST. CLAIR, Mo. (AP) - A fat cat that drew international attention when its owner turned him over to a shelter is now living at a sanctuary for hard-to-place animals in eastern Missouri.
The cat, named Biscuit, weighed 37 pounds when he was taken to the St. Charles shelter. More than 110 people offered to adopt him before he was placed with a couple from Eureka earlier this month.
However, Biscuit fought with a cat at that home and the couple couldn't keep him. On Saturday, Biscuit was turned over to The Shannon Foundation sanctuary for hard-to-place animals outside St. Clair in Franklin County. He'll stay there permanently, living with about 75 other animals.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Biscuit weighed 33.2 pounds on Thursday. His goal weight is 14.8 pounds.
