Fugitive Flees Off Duty Officer at Bus Stop

CORPUS CHRISTI - An off-duty officer chased a wanted man from the bus station near City Hall all the way to an I-37 underpass this afternoon.

Police say the plainclothes officer was working security for RTA when he recognized the man. He was able to get the guy in custody briefly. Once free, the man took off running towards Antelope Street and I-37.

A Corpus Christi motorcycle officer was seen moving pretty quickly on foot to catch the guy next the Interstate. It was a Sheriff's Deputy Robert A. Cavazos who caught the guy.

As Cavazos was heading back from lunch he had spotted the chase. He got out of his car and ordered the man to surrender.

As he was being moved to the back of a police car he called out to his girlfriend or wife to "please bail him out." He told the woman he did nothing wrong.

Authorities say the man was wanted on outstanding warrants and now faces charges for evading and resisting arrest. We're waiting on confirmation of the man's identity.

The off-duty officer involved was treated for minor cuts and bruises because he took a nasty spill during the chase.
