Austin Eugene Dean, 20 of Rome, was arrested this week after officers said he attempted to avoid capture by the Floyd County Sheriff’s Officer.

Reports stated that Dean was wanted on a failure to appear warrant when he was spotted by deputies.  They went on to say that at that point Dean fled the scene on foot while avoiding commands to stop.

This occurred back on June 29th at a location on Todd Street. 

He was able to avoid capture that day but was apprehended this week at a location on Kingston Highway.  

Dean is charged with willful obstruction, failure to appear and probation violation.
