A Dexter man was arrested after attempting to flee police. Officers received a report on May 16 about an intoxicated man inside McDonald’s who also had a warrant on him. An officer found 20-year-old Jared Metcalf coming out of the bathroom. When the officer was detaining him, he escaped, heading east. As he was running, what appeared to be a black pistol fell from his pants, onto the ground. Police later realized it was a bb or pellet gun. Officers found Metcalf behind a propane tank and was able to arrest him, though he resisted. He is being held on possession of controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia, and resisting arrest on felony. His bond is set at $5,000 cash only.
