HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt said a man has been arrested after stealing a truck and leading officers on a foot chase.

According to the sheriff, a truck was reported stolen on Tuesday. Officers spotted the vehicle Wednesday in Henderson County, and tried to pull the driver over.

Police identified Josh Calhoun, 33, as the driver. They say he took off and led deputies on a chase, Nutt says, eventually ditching the truck. Calhoun then reportedly took off on foot before officers caught up with him and arrested him.

Calhoun is now in Henderson County Jail facing felony theft and evading arrest charges.
