Deputies immediately began getting information from family members. While investigating, they spotted the couple running through yards, over fences and fields. The officers give chase on foot.
Netherton escaped, but deputies arrested the 25-year-old woman running with him, identified as Alexis Reynolds, who was charged with multiple warrants including fugitive from justice charges.
Throughout the night, deputies continued the search for Netherton, calling in a K-9 unit out of Kingston Springs. But the wanted man vanished into the night.
On Sunday, Oct. 15, four days later, deputies received a tip about where the wanted man was and went to that house. Body cam footage shows as the deputies entered the disheveled home, weapons drawn, and began calling out for Netherton.
Then, in a rear bedroom, deputies picked up a bedspread and some laundry and found the suspect hiding. With guns drawn, they ordered him to surrender.
Netherton was unarmed and surrendered without incident. Deputies also found a small amount of Schedule II drugs on Netherton’s person.
Netherton is still in jail and charged with multiple felonies including domestic aggravated assault, evading arrest, reckless endangerment, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
His bond is $53,500.
