According to the Clayton Police, an officer was attempting to pull Meacham over for an unknown traffic violation when Meacham stopped the vehicle and fled on foot.
As Meacham was being chased by the officer, he unknowingly ran into the St. Louis County police headquarters looking for a place to hide.
Investigators say detectives watched as Meacham darted in and out of hallways, clearly not knowing where he was going.
Eventually, Meacham ran into an office occupied by the Chief of Police. That's when he realized that he had hit a dead end, dropped to the floor and curled up into a ball. Meacham was then taken into custody at gun point.
"He acted like if he didn't look up and couldn't see us, then we couldn't see him," said St. Louis County Lt. Bryan Ludwig.
