A crook and bull story in US theft

Police in the US say a burglary suspect in the state of Alabama was taken into custody after being chased by a bull through a cow pasture.

Sheriff Scott Walls said 26-year-old Brad Lynn Hemby was being sought in connection with a burglary.

Hemby tried fleeing from deputies by running through a cow pasture and a bull roaming the land joined the chase.

He eventually fell on to a barbed wire fence and surrendered.
