HUMPHREYS COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — Deputies said a man is now custody after he fled from a neighboring county, which led to a search in Humphreys County on Saturday afternoon.

On Saturday, Sept. 9, the Humphreys County Sheriff’s Office urged residents to “secure your doors and vehicle” after a man drove away from Hickman County law enforcement and crashed in the 4400 block of Highway 230.

The man from the vehicle reportedly ran into the woods. However, when authorities searched the area, they said they couldn’t find him.

Officials described the man as approximately 5-feet 11-inches tall with a red beard, black shirt, and gym shorts.
