Saturday night 3 men, who were illegally fishing on private property, were stopped by Morgan Deputies.  The records were run on all three men, when it was found that one of the men was wanted for 4 warrants for his arrest. The man took off running, and a foot chase evolved. The man ran across the river. The officers called on the state troopers and a canine unit to help in the pursuit. The man was arrested later when the deputies pulled over a vehicle from the same county as the man wanted for the warrants was from. The man in the vehicle was actually the friend called on to pick up his friend who was in hiding. The man driving the vehicle was not arrested as he provided information to police, but the friend who fled from authorities was arrested.
