WESTPORT (CBS) — Two Massachusetts State Police troopers and a K9 unit got stuck in the mud during a chase of a suspect into the woods Saturday evening.

A police spokesman said troopers were pursuing a vehicle on Route 195 in Westport at about 6:30 p.m. when the driver bailed and fled on foot into the nearby woods.

One trooper got stuck in the swamp, so police sent in another trooper and K9 unit, who also got stuck in a thick swamp area.

A police helicopter and another rescue crew had to be summoned to help them out of the swamp.

Police said the suspect was also found and led out of the swamp, and the suspect will be summonsed to court. There were no injuries.
