A Williamsburg man allegedly locked himself in a bathroom and jumped out a window in an effort to flee Whitley County Sheriff’s deputies late Tuesday evening.
About 10:30 p.m., K-9 Deputy Brian Hensley and Deputy Jonas Saunders responded to 206 Henry Barton Road to serve Ryan P. Mason, 26, with a felony arrest warrant.
“Once deputies entered the residence, Ryan Mason ran to the back bathroom and locked himself inside. As deputies reached the bathroom, they could hear Ryan Mason jumping out the window in an attempt to flee from them,” Sheriff Colan Harrell said in a release.
Hensley and Saunders both ran outside the residence and proceeded to chase Mason down the road and caught up with him behind a neighbor’s residence.
“Ryan Mason then started kicking at the deputies and trying to get away, but the deputies were able to restrain him and effectively make the arrest. Upon searching Ryan Mason, deputies located a metal container that contained a small orange pill believed to be Suboxone,” Harrell wrote in the release.
Deputies charged Mason with second-degree fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest, third-degree possession of a controlled substance, having a prescription not in its proper container, and with a felony circuit court warrant for failure to appear.
He was lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center where he is being held without bond, according to the detention center’s website.
