seemed to become increasingly nervous and was asked to sit in the patrol car while they finished checking out the four-wheeler, but he ran into the woods.
After Gatheright ran, the deputy asked a female passenger about what she knew concerning the four-wheeler. According to the report, she said Gatheright had it when he picked her up but had pulled over and asked her to drive the truck into Felsenthal and he would drive the four-wheeler. She said he told her that he would meet her in town.
He was putting the ramps down to take the four-wheeler off the trailer when the deputy arrived.
A K-9 unit attempted to follow Gatheright but lost his scent a few hundred yards into the woods.
A deputy patrolling an area where Gatheright had been seen spotted him before he ran back into the woods. The deputy yelled for him to come out or another K-9 unit would be released, and Gatheright eventually came out.
Gatheright was taken to the Union County Sheriff’s Office where he was held until he posted a $25,000 bond.
