Bicycle Chase in Jackson County, AL Ends in Arrest

by: Summer Kelley

A man on a bicycle led Jackson County, AL deputies on a low speed chase Monday night.

A deputy attempted to talk to the man on the bicycle on County Road 784 which is located on Sand Mountain just above Rising Fawn. The man fled on his bicycle into a yard and eventually onto County Road 141, refusing to stop for the deputy. A second deputy joined in the chase before the bicyclist left the bike and fled on foot into the woods.

Forty-six year-old Bryon Gentry of Bryant, Alabama was located by deputies, arrested, and charged with Resisting Arrest and Attempting to Elude. Gentry also had an outstanding warrant for Domestic Violence.
