Police Capture Man Involved In Chase Back in January

He's been on the run for five months. Matthew Todd Hudson is now behind bars in Lubbock. Back in January Hudson led Terry County Authorities on a high speed chase. On Tuesday, Idalou Police were able to catch him on foot.

It started near a group of homes under construction around eight Tuesday morning. Idalou Police tell us they questioned Matthew Hudson in response to a call about suspicious activity in this area. Soon police learned Hudson had outstanding warrants for possession of a controlled substance. When officers tried to arrest the 32-year-old, he ran to a nearby field. Police chased Hudson on foot and had some trouble trying to arrest him.

"[We] had to use pepper spray to get him under control and we finally restrained him in a cotton field after a lengthy struggle," explains Idalou Chief of Police Bryan Frieda.

Police found a number of stolen items in his truck, drug paraphernalia and possible narcotics. One of the stolen items found on Hudson is a Dallas County Sheriff's badge. Idalou Police are working with the Dallas Police Department to find out how Hudson got the badge and whether he'll be facing any more charges associated with it. They believe it is the same truck Hudson used to lead Terry County authorities on a chase back in January. The white Chevrolet pickup is reported stolen from Terry County.

Hudson is facing several charges including evading arrest and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. He is being held in the Lubbock County Jail for several outstanding warrants. Police believe Hudson may be linked to several burglaries in the Lubbock area.
