DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

 Coffee County deputies and Douglas police officers got some help from mother nature, when the man they were chasing couldn't run through the briar patch where he was trying to get away.

It all started Saturday morning, when deputies spotted 25-year-old Kadeem Demond Lewis in the area of Georgia Highway 32 West. They knew he had active warrants, and tried to stop him in the area of Salem Church Road.

Lewis jumped out of car, and took off running.

They chased him through Evans’ Mobile Home Park and into a wooded area behind Salem Church. They caught up to him when he became trapped inside a thick briar patch.

Lewis was treated by emergency medical personnel for minor injuries he got from the thorns and briars and taken to the Coffee County Jail.

He faces one charge of obstruction of law enforcement in relation to this incident. He has also been charged with criminal trespass and theft by taking, from an incident that occurred earlier this month.

He faces additional charges of criminal damage to property through the Douglas Police Dept., along with a 2016 bench warrant for failing to appear in court.
