Arrested man runs from police

A Grambling man was arrested by Ruston Police Sunday morning after all officers responded to a harassment complaint at a local hotel.

Officers went to Sleep Inn about 9 a.m. Sunday where the victim reported Delano Owens, 28, was tampering with the tires on her car. Owen said he was replacing his wife’s tires.

The victim said she did not tell Owens her whereabouts and was not supposed to be doing anything to her vehicle.

Owens was placed under arrest, and he immediately attempted to run away but he was apprehended quickly. While officers were speaking to Owens, he ran off and a foot pursuit ensued for several blocks. The foot chase ended when Owens was struck by a Taser and taken into custody.

Owens was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for criminal mischief, simple escape, and resisting an officer. Bail was set at $6,250.
