DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA (WFTV) – What started as a traffic stop quickly turned into a high-speed chase, back-to-back crashes and an arrest that happened thanks, in part, to the suspect’s pants falling down.

Tobias Smith, 24, faces a long list of charges stemming from the chaotic chase and crashes.

Smith made a hard right from the center lane onto Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard, police say, and at one point drove 60 mph in an area with a 25 mph speed limit.

Police say Smith ran a red light at the intersection with North Keech Street, and hit a car, a light pole and then the front of Nu-Looks Barber Shop, which had customers in it at the time.

After the crash, police say Smith got out of the car and started running. Two officers caught up to him as his pants fell to his ankles, knocking him down.
