The man who allegedly carjacked a taxi and led police on a chase last month is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

That chase was captured by Chopper 7 HD.

Larry Hampton is accused of robbing a subway restaurant in Des Plaines and then carjacking a taxi.

Police chased that stolen cab through several north suburbs before it crashed in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the city's North Side.

Hampton was seen running out of the cab and was tackled by a police officer.
