A man who had outstanding warrants thought running from police was a good idea.  Today he is in the Jefferson County jail.

Beaumont officers tried to stop the man Saturday at the corner of 11th Street and Sweetgum Lane, but the man refused to pull over.  Police say he eventually abandoned his car and tried to flee on foot.  Officers quickly overtook him and put him in handcuffs.

Officers have added a charge of evading arrest to his original warrants.

His name has not yet been released.
