A U.S. Secret Service agent runs along a street near where President Barack Obama is spending his holiday vacation in Kailua, Hawaii, on Thursday, Dec. 24. A man led officers on a high-speed chase that crossed a security checkpoint near the neighborhood where the president is staying. Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said the man was arrested a short time later and incident was not related to the president's visit, in Kailua, Hawaii.

A Secret Service agent draws her handgun on a man evading arrest by Honolulu police on Thursday.

msnbc.com staff and news services report: A man fleeing from local police drove through an outer perimeter checkpoint set up near President Barack Obama's Hawaii vacation home Friday, officials said.

Photographers took pictures of a Secret Service agent sprinting toward the scene and pointing a gun at a vehicle.

The driver wasn't trying to get near the president or his family and the incident had nothing to do with his Hawaii visit, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said.

"Honolulu police was going to arrest someone they had traffic violations for," Donovan said. "He was able to get away from them and led them in a high-speed chase which ultimately led to one of our checkpoints."
