(KMOV.com) -- St. Louis City police have identified a man who was arrested after he allegedly crashed during a police pursuit, then tried to climb into an antelope enclosure at the St. Louis Zoo.

Larry Hudson Jr., 24, faces charges of resisting arrest by fleeing, interfering with arrest, and leaving the scene of an accident.

Police said officers tried to pull over Hudson's car at I-64 and Kingshighway for a traffic stop around 11:30 p.m.

Authorities said the car fled on I-64 and crashed into a retaining wall at the Hampton exit. Authorities said Hudson then got out of his car and ran into Forest Park.

Police said Hudson then ran to the front of the St. Louis Zoo and tried to scale a fence into the antelope enclosure. A park ranger used a stun gun to stop him.

Hudson's bond was set at $10,000.
