FAIRBANKS, Alaska- Alaska State Troopers a 20-year-old Wasilla man suffered frostbite and hypothermia after a foot chase in 20-below temperatures in Cantwell.

Samuel Wade was treated at a Fairbanks hospital before he was taken to Fairbanks Correctional Center Tuesday.
Troopers say Wade was the driver of a stolen vehicle found in a Parks Highway ditch. According to troopers, Wade ran off after troopers conducted a traffic stop on another car Wade had gotten a ride with.
Troopers say Wade led troopers on a chase that lasted more than an hour before he was caught by a trooper dog.
Troopers arrested Wade on charges including vehicle theft and resisting arrest. Wade also had an existing warrant for felony escape.
It's unclear if Wade has an attorney.
