ABILENE, Texas - A 22-year-old man wanted for evading arrest tried to run from police Thursday, only to be captured minutes later.
According to Abilene police, Christopher Minor was wanted in connection with a felony evading arrest from Oct. 27. He was spotted on South 1st Street on Thursday morning. When police attempted to contact Minor, he allegedly fled.
