Wild foot chase ends in arrest
Charles Penn Jr. was also charged with evading arrest and resisting arrest.
He remains in the county jail in lieu of $29,000 bond.
Chief Deputy Chris White said investigator Jay Beathard was looking into a complaint involving a female victim “under age 14.”
“Investigator Beathard attempted to take Penn into custody near the Milano Cefco store,” White said. “The suspect resisted and f led on foot.”
Beathard, along with DPS Sgt.
Michael Nix and Trooper Donald
Delukie, gave chase, according to White.
“ The officers were able to catch the suspect after a chase that went through two pastures and across two fences,” he added.
Indecency with a child is a felony offense while the resisting and evading arrest charges are misdemeanors.
