    Re: to chace somebody/to chace after somebody

    Firstly it's chase. There's not much difference, but it could be more direct without the preposition; if you chase after somebody, you try to catch them up, so you'd chase after a friend to tell them something. If you chase someone, you try to catch them, so the police would chase a criminal.
