SHAWNEETOWN MAN FLEES, FIGHTS WITH COPSPosted by Jack Howser on Wednesday, February 13th, 2013 @ 8:52 pm.
SHAWNEETOWN---We've received word that a car chase has ended in the town park in Old Shawneetown.
Authorities are saying Dustin Cobb, of Shawneetown, allegedly stole a car
and, with a passenger (he is now reported to be alone) gave the cops a brief run that ended in Old Town.
The latest info had that one person had fled the car on foot and authorities were in pursuit, and the other, reportedly Cobb, was fighting with police as he was arrested; however, we've learned that the singular person exiting the vehicle and tussling with cops was Cobb and only Cobb. He's wearing a black jacket and white shirt, and was spotted headed toward Route 13, perhaps trying to get across the bridge to Kentucky...but our source is saying authorities pretty much have him surrounded.
Maybe Cobb knew that... at about 9 p.m. he was spotted hiding in a school bus behind the old school (Scates' migrant workers home).
However, latest word (at 10:05) is that he had gotten away, having eluded authorities.
The vehicle has been returned to the owner.
More as we get it; keep checking back.
