A Bartholomew County sheriff’s deputy stopped a vehicle Saturday night, but the driver tried to run away, authorities say.

Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department, says the incident happened at about 10:13 p.m. Saturday when a deputy pulled over the vehicle in the 6000 block of South Jonesville Road. The driver ran and entered a nearby residence, but as deputies approached, he allegedly fled again and was caught in a nearby yard.

26-year-old Jesse Cameron of Columbus is facing preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement and driving while suspended. He was also wanted on an outstanding warrant from Bartholomew County and two warrants from Brown County, Jackson said.
