According to a KSP report, Trooper Jon McGehee stopped a vehicle being driven by Jacob R. Asberry, 22, Rockport, on Highland Drive, Greenville at approximately 10:49 p.m.

As McGehee was attempting to arrest Asberry for driving under the influence, Asberry fled on foot to a nearby wooded area but was apprehended after a brief pursuit, the report said.
