KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -

Kilgore police have caught a suspect who ran from a traffic stop this afternoon. Police pulled a vehicle over on Highway 259 North near Rabbit Creek Bridge.

The vehicle was occupied by a male and a female. Police ran a check on the license plate, and police say it came back "wanted". We're told that's when the male driver took off. 

Police say the female passenger also gave false information to officers. We're told she also tried to run, but she was tasered by police and taken into custody.

After a brief search, an officer with a K9 caught up with the male driver about three miles from the scene on Highway 42 near Royal Oaks Drive.
