47-year-old Wilbert J. Brown, a man from Dallas, led authorities on a pursuit in Tyler, Texas, and was later apprehended on Monday evening.
Brown was being pulled over for a traffic violation in a 2015 Hyundai Sonata on CR 164 in Smith County.
Authorities say that Brown wouldn’t stop, and they started to pursue him. The chase came to an end at the Village on Broadway apartment complex. Brown then began running away on foot. Eventually, he was caught.
When Brown’s vehicle was searched, 77 pounds of marijuana were found.
He has been charged with evading arrest or detention with a motor vehicle, possession of marijuana of over 50lbs and less than 2000lbs, and failing to identify-fugitive from justice.
Documents note that Brown has four arrest warrants from Tarrant County. He is being held in the Smith County Jail.
An investigation is continuing.
