DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

A man who was violating a court order ran from deputies who tried to arrest him Monday, but was caught four hours later.

They went to a house on on Country Meadows Road, where 21-year-old Ariel Martinez, of Millwood, was banned by a family protective order.

They saw Martinez on the front porch, and he took off running. Deputies went into the woods looking for him, with a Ware State Prison dog unit.

Authorities caught up with him as he tried to get into a pickup truck off Highway 158 East.

They arrested him, and transported him to the Coffee County Jail.

Martinez faces charges of aggravated stalking and obstruction of law enforcement.
