A man on the run from the Rayne Police was busted in Baton Rouge overnight.

Police in Rayne say John Smith, 45, stole a city of Rayne pickup truck earlier this month.

Baton Rouge Police spotted that truck at the "Alamo" hotel on Florida Boulevard and they had to chase Smith down to make him stop, not before he crashed into someone's car.  After the crash he stopped and a K-9 took him down.

BRPD says once they got Smith in the cop car, he started banging his head in the car and got hurt.

He's booked in Baton Rouge, but will be transferred back to Rayne.
