A 27-year-old man is in custody Thursday afternoon after fleeing a traffic stop on Interstate 10 in Livingston Parish earlier that day, a State Police official said.
Myron Potts Jr. was booked into Livingston Parish jail on counts of illegal possession of stolen things, resisting an officer and no seat belt. Three female passengers in the vehicle were detained for questioning, said State Police spokesman Trooper Bryan Lee. The automobile, a 2002 Honda Civic was pulled over because it was reported stolen in Houston, Lee said.
Bail for Potts, who remained in custody Thursday afternoon, is set at $1,025.
