A man was arrested by Bryan police last Monday after he fled from officers, first in a vehicle and then on foot. Evidently, the man did not want to talk to police because he had a suspended driver's license.

The incident began when officers responded to a residence on Rabbit Lane around 7 p.m. They were investigating a call about a domestic incident.

One officer was standing in the road when he heard a vehicle coming toward him. The officer became concerned that the person driving the vehicle was going too fast, so he yelled at him to stop, but the man did not.

The office pursued the speeding vehicle until the man parked his vehicle and ran away. Police were able to use the vehicle's registration to tack the man down at a nearby residence.

He has now been charged with evading arrest with a vehicle and evading arrest by foot.

Suspended driver's licenses are certainly no fun, but they are no reason to go to the lengths this man seems to have gone. It is possible that there is more to this story than we are aware, but it certainly seems like an unusual decision to make based on the facts in front of him.
