Lefeged, 25, was in a vehicle with another man when police attempted to stop the vehicle. After an unspecified chase the two were arrested, said Officer Araz Alali, a DC police spokesman.
A handgun was found in the vehicle, Alali said.
The arrest occurred in northeast Washington on the 4200 block of Blaine Street Northeast at 12:05 a.m. today.
