BRENHAM, Tex. (KBTX) - A suspected child molester on the run from North Texas was arrested in Brenham.

Corsicana police say they were investigating Daniel Burks and obtained warrants for continuous sexual assault of a child and sexual assault of a child.

Burks left town before he could be taken into custody, but authorities got a tip he was in Brenham. Brenham police tracked him down to a home where he barricaded himself inside.

After hours of negotiations, authorities used tear gas and entered the home.
