GEORGETOWN, OH (FOX19) - When a man took off running the moment he saw a sheriff's cruiser, the deputy took that as a bad sign.
Sheriff Dwayne Wenninger reports one of his deputies was on patrol Thursday afternoon when he observed a vehicle pulling into a residence on Crosstown Road in Brown County outside of Williamsburg. The male driver then exited the vehicle and started running.
The Deputy verbally ordered the suspect to stop, but the man kept running.
The suspect was identified as being Dale Robert Abbott, 44 years of age, of Williamsburg, OH, who was wanted by the Brown County Sheriff's Office on a warrant for Failure to Appear on a previous assault charge. The Brown County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit was called to the scene to track the suspect.
About an hour later, the suspect was flushed out and apprehended by deputies near Edgington Road.
Abbott was transported to the Brown County Adult Detention Center where he is jailed on charges of Resisting Arrest and Failure to Appear.
