A Paris man was arrested this afternoon after he fled from officers on Tuesday into a wooded area after several disturbance calls.
Paris Police Officers responded to several calls in the area of the 1400 block of W. Sperry regarding a disturbance around 2:06 p.m. and 4:25 p.m.
“The individual involved was identified as a 41-year-old Marshall Fox of Paris,” said Chief Hundley. “Fox had a felony warrants outstanding for his arrest.”
According to the report, Fox ran from officers and eventually into a large wooded area in the 1400 block of W. Sherman. After losing sight of the suspect, officers remained in the area but failed to locate him.
“On Wednesday afternoon, an off-duty officer spotted Fox again in the 500 block of S Collegiate and followed him until several police units were in place.”
Officers made contact with him in the 100 block of NE 25th St. He was taken into custody without incident at that point.
Fox has been charged with a parole violation warrant and a felony warrant for possession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility. Other charges may be added regarding the evading arrest yesterday.
