Suspect Flees Deputies, Captured After Vehicle and Foot Chase
Short chase ends in DUI arrest
A Laurel man who must have thought he had a better chance outrunning law on foot than in his vehicle wound up behind bars anyway on the night before Thanksgiving.
Alex Onisimo Ramirez, 23, was charged with DUI-first offense, resisting arrest and reckless driving after being taken into custody in North Laurel around 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Ramirez was booked into the Jones County Adult Detention Center, where he remained on Friday morning before facing a Jones County Justice Court Judge for his initial appearance.
