A police chase in Bay City led to the arrest of a 22-year-old Bay City man Saturday morning.
An officer was patrolling about 4:25 a.m. in the 3100 block of Avenue F when she saw a maroon Chevrolet pickup traveling on the wrong side of the road, according to a Bay City Police Department news release.
