Some people will do anything to avoid going to jail, even if it means fleeing from the hospital.
Thatís exactly what one man allegedly did early Saturday morning when authorities transported him to Texas Health Harris Methodist Stephenville after he crashed a stolen vehicle.†
Billy Mann, 32, crashed around 2 a.m. on Highway 6 and was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries, according to Sgt. Chris Frost with the Texas Department of Public Safety. Frost said an accident report is not available, but confirmed that Mann fled from the hospital before authorities could place him under arrest.
Stephenville police assisted DPS in locating the suspect, who was later found at Parhamís Garage shortly before 5 a.m.
Mann has been charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and driving while intoxicated. He remains incarcerated in the Erath County Jail held on $5,000 and $1,000 bonds.
