A bull decided to horn in on the action as authorities chased a suspect in northern Alabama.

Sheriff's officials in Marshall County say the burglary suspect was taken into custody after being chased by a bull through a cow pasture.

Marshall County Sheriff Scott Walls tells WHNT-TV (http://bit.ly/1eHdsnY) 26-year-old Brad Lynn Hemby was being sought in connection with a burglary Wednesday morning in Arab.

Walls says Hemby tried fleeing deputies by running through a cow pasture and a bull roaming the land joined the chase. Walls says Hemby eventually fell onto a barbed wire fence and surrendered.

Walls says stolen property was recovered from Hemby's truck and the man is charged with burglary, theft and attempting to elude. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
