A Fort Bragg man has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after allegedly trying to run away from a traffic stop. Fort Bragg Police say an officer stopped Ian Freeman on South Franklin Street Sunday night because his tail lights were out. But police say Freeman refused to stop, and led the officer on a slow-speed chase for a couple of blocks before stopping in a parking lot on Cypress Street and then running away. He was caught a few minutes later and after the officer determined he was intoxicated he was arrested on suspicion of DUI, while on probation for a prior DUI conviction, as well as driving on a suspended license and evading.

They say they’re looking for men and women of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities as well as kids over 6. They ask that you bring a current 3×5 picture of yourself, a pen, and a great attitude.
