(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington Police arrested 29-year-old Kenneth Jordan after a car chase early Tuesday morning.

The pursuit started after police received a call at 12:30 a.m. about an ambulance crew responding to an unconscious woman. Officers went to the scene and were told that the two people, who had been with the woman and wanted on warrants, left in a white van and would likely be parked on Illinois Court.

While medical services took care of the woman, officers attempted to locate the vehicle. Officers found the van and attempted to stop it after the driver failed to signal while turning. Once the officer got out of his vehicle and approached, the van sped off.

The police followed Jordan south on Adams Street. The van then took a right on Kirkwood Avenue. Once on Kirkwood, the van was forced to swerve around vehicles. The van then turned on Hopewell -- a dead end -- and began to drive across yards. The vehicle began going east on Sixth Street, and Jordan threw a loaded Glock 17 9mm handgun out of the car at Sixth and Pine streets. This gun had been 
reported stolen in 2013.

Shortly after throwing the gun out of the car, Jordan ran into the traffic stops in the center of the road and wrecked the van. He was arrested on charges of resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, reckless driving, driving without a license and possession of a handgun without a license.

Police then searched the vehicle. They found marijuana, cash and sandwich bags to sell the drugs inside the vehicle.
