Accused car thief runs to bank, arrested in parking lot

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

News Leader 9 was there as police arrested a shirtless man in the parking lot of a bank Friday morning, but he's not accused of trying to rob it.

Officers ran the license plate of a car on 13th Street and discovered it was reported stolen. 

When they tried to pull over the driver, authorities say he jumped out and started running. Police caught up to him in the parking lot of BB&T bank where they attempted to subdue him with a taser. 

The man was able to dodge the taser, but he was arrested soon afterward.
