Man tries to avoid arrest in women’s clothes
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Knoxville police have arrested a man they said assaulted an officer and then changed into women’s clothing in an attempt to disguise himself. The Knoxville News Sentinel reported a 19-year-old man was arrested Monday night on charges including DUI, assault on an officer, resisting arrest and burglary. He also has four outstanding warrants.
Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk said the suspect assaulted Officer Andrew Gyorfi after the teen was pulled over at about 8 p.m. for driving a car that had been reported stolen in Chattanooga. He then ran to a nearby public housing project and entered a woman’s apartment, putting on her clothes and leaving his there.
He was arrested about two hours later while walking down the street wearing women’s shoes, pants and jacket.
