A Colquitt County man was arrested Wednesday night after he reportedly ran from officers investigating a truck whose owner in Tennessee reported it was being driven without her permission.

The 1986 Nissan pickup truck was found apparently out of gas at about 11 p.m. on South Baker Street in Ellenton, Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office reports said. The owner in Chattanooga had reported that Guy Bowman did not have permission to use the vehicle.

Sheriff’s deputies were directed to North Baker Street, where Bowman was with a group of people. As the officer arrived the crowd pointed out Bowman, who was standing by a semi truck.

When Bowman saw the officer looking in his direction, Bowman started running down North Baker Street, where he was caught after a brief chase.

Bowman, 41, 506 Clarence Jones Road, was charged with obstruction of an officer and probation violation.
