Curtis Huddleston, a 36 year old resident of Milano, turned himself in this morning after running from Sheriff’s Deputies Wednesday afternoon. The incident started when Milam County Sheriff’s - Traffic Deputy, Josh Clouse, attempted to stop a suspicious vehicle on County Road 322 Wednesday afternoon. The driver fled up County Road 330 and then west on U.S. Highway 79 until he wrecked just west of County Road 360. Huddleston then fled on foot from his vehicle south through a heavily wooded area. Sheriff Greene and his deputies, assisted by Precinct 1 Constable John Anderle and Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Gaston searched the wooded area south of Highway 79. The search briefly heated up a second time when a resident spotted Huddleston running southwest near County Road 329. However the search was called off about two hours later, after deputy Clouse positively identified a photo of the suspect as being that of the person who ran from him.
A warrant was obtained for evading arrest, transport, detention which was upgraded to a felony due to Mr. Huddleston having a previous charge and conviction for the same offense. Contact was made with Mr. Huddleston by telephone and arrangements were made to turn himself in. He was arraigned and his bond set at 10,000 dollars.
