Disturbance Call Leads to Arrest and Multiple Charges

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A Wichita Falls man is facing multiple charges after a scuffle with police and a foot chase.

Around 2 a.m. Tuesday morning, Wichita Falls police responded to the 2800 block of Southwest Parkway for a disturbance call.

It's unclear what prompted the call, but police say while they were speaking to a male subject in the Mardel's parking lot, they got into an altercation with the man, who then fled from police on foot.

Police say the man took off, heading west on Southwest Parkway, into a drainage ditch.

Police blocked either side of the ditch, where he was captured swimming in it a short time later.

Officers say he's been charged with Evading, Resisting Arrest, and Public Intoxication.
