Guilty Plea Entered After Man Runs From Police

A Williamsburg man pleads guilty to all charges after leading police on a foot chase that included him jumping into the flooded Cumberland River.

The Times Tribune says 21-year old Matt Pool ran through fields and a cemetary and then swam across the swollen river before climbing an interstate bridge and continuing to run.

Officers finally caught him on the I-75 exit ramp.

Pool pled guilty to several charges including public intoxication and evading police.
