DeKALB COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - A man was arrested Wednesday after running from police for several hours.
The DeKalb County Sherriff's Deparment says it started with a traffic stop around 2 a.m. on southbound I-69, just north of the Allen County line.
During the stop, a K-9 alerted deputies illigeal drugs could be inside the car.
DeKalb County Sheriff Don Lauer said in a news release the deputy was looking through the drugs with a knife when Ivan Jaimes Molina, 23, from Fort Meade, Florida, lunged at the deputy, grabbing his arm.
That's when the deputy cut Molina's clothing and Molina ran off.
Lauer said police in Allen County were called around 7:45 a.m. to a suspicious person hitchhiking just north of Dupont Road.
When a conservation officer arrived, Molina ran off again.
Molina was found in a barn in the 14000 block of Auburn Road and arrested without incident.
Lauer said Molina only suffered minor injuries from barbed wire.
