Juneau police say they arrested a fugitive, who left a halfway house earlier this week. But not before the man ran from officers trying to apprehend him.
On Sunday, police say 33-year-old Shane McCourt walked away from the Glacier Manor Halfway House.
Lieutenant David Campbell says an officer who stopped to check on a disabled vehicle Tuesday night recognized McCourt as a passenger in the car. McCourt fled on foot, crossing Egan Drive twice near Fred Meyer, before ultimately surrendering to police.
McCourt was arrested and charged with felony escape and resisting arrest. His friend, William Ratliff, was arrested for hindering prosecution.
Both men were taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center, and were scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon in Juneau District Court.
