Wanted Man Runs From Police To Avoid Arrest

A 20-year-old man added to his troubles by running when police tried to arrest him on warrants Tuesday.

Todrick Zyquince Cork was reportedly first contacted at Pacific Park at 12:13 p.m. June 11 regarding a wanted person. He allegedly initially gave officers a false name, but then provided his correct information.

A records check showed him to be wanted on a Lamar County evading arrest or detention with a vehicle charge and on Paris unlawful carrying of a weapon and possession of marijuana charges. As the officer attempted to place him into custody, he fled on foot, Sulphur Springs Police Officer Adrian Pruitt alleged in arrest reports.

The officer reportedly chased after the man, who failed several times to comply with his orders for him to stop. As the officer gained ground, the man stopped, got on the ground on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive at W.A. Street, and was arrested on all three warrants as well as evading arrest or detention, the officer alleged in arrest reports.

Cork remained in Hopkins County jail Wednesday afternoon. His bond was set at $10,000 on the evading arrest with a vehicle charge, and $2,000 each on the three other charges, according to jail reports.
