A local man was arrested Saturday morning after being accused of running from police and trespassing at an apartment.

A Bartholomew County deputy noticed 26 year old Kyle L. Tews of Columbus outside an apartment in the 1600 block of W. County Road 650N in Taylorsville at about 12:38 a.m. Saturday morning and recognized that Tews was wanted on two outstanding warrants.

When the deputy tried to arrest Tews, he allegedly took off running instead. Other deputies arrived on the scene and Tews surrendered. That’s when officers found out that Tews was trespassing at the apartment in the first place according to police reports.

He was arrested on the two warrants, as well as new charges of resisting law enforcement and criminal trespass.
