PITTSTON TWP., Penn. — A fugitive wanted by authorities in Louisiana bolted from a traffic stop Tuesday night and led police on a foot pursuit that ended when he and three officers got stuck at the bottom of a 30-foot ravine.

The officers detained and handcuffed Marc Keating, 33, at the bottom of the embankment off Tedrick Street and waited for firefighters to deploy their rope-rescue equipment to bring them to street level.
