Unlicensed driver flees officer

On Thursday, at about 3:00 p.m. Ruston Police Sergeant K. D. Loyd observed a Ford SUV with a taillight violation at the intersection of Louisiana Highway 33 and Kentucky Avenue.

Loyd attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver failed to pull over. The patrol car’s siren was turned on, but the Ford continued at a slow rate of speed west on Kentucky, turning on Cedar Creek Drive, then Post Oak Drive, and then English Turn. The driver was taken into custody after finally coming to a stop.

The Mississippi license plate on the vehicle was not registered to the SUV. A temporary Texas license tag also appeared to be fake. The driver did not have a driver’s license, proof of insurance, or vehicle registration. Antonio Aguas, 41, of Ruston, was arrested for flight from an officer, fictitious license plate, no driver’s license, no proof of insurance, and failure to register the vehicle.

Bail was set at $16,250.
