Smith Co. authorities apprehend man in foot chase

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Smith County authorities were involved in a foot chase in northeastern Smith County Tuesday afternoon.

The search took place near the Cross Brand Cowboy Church on County Road 334 at FM 2015.

Church officials tells KTLV that a maintenance employee at the church saw Paul Alexander, 43, rummaging through brush and woods and asked him what he was doing.
