BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — A police chase to catch an alleged Battle Creek shoplifter was caught in an unlikely place: a family’s photo shoot at Leila Arboretum, 928 W Michigan Ave.

According to Shannon’s Photography, a local business who was shooting the family, a routine photo shoot Tuesday evening with the Metheny family was interrupted when at least five police cars blazed through the background.

Gary Metheny, one of the men in the photo, said the family will use the photo on their Christmas card this year.
