A Quincy man is behind bars Thursday morning after leading police on a foot chase through Quincy's Southwest side.

Now Wrencher is in the Adams County Jail on a failure to appear warrant for an aggravated battery charge. He also faces charges of resisting an officer, obstruction of justice and drug possession.
