Teen runs from cops, gets stuck in branches

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A Thomasville teenager was booked in the Thomas County Jail Friday night, after trying to run from cops and ending up entangled in branches and thorns.

Police arrested 17-year-old Dexter Shepherd after someone spotted Shepherd holding a gun while walking down the street.

When officers confronted him, he ran into the woods, got stuck in the shrubs, and was eventually taken into custody.

Officers later found a gun in Shepherd's pocket that had been reported stolen from a pawn shop.
