Man Subdues Lawnmower Bandit after Chase

A homeowner confronts a man allegedly stealing his riding lawnmower. That led to a chase, and a fight.

It happened on County road 4104 in Smith County about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. The sheriff's department says 42-year old Elvis Black was arrested on theft and assault charges after loading a riding lawnmower into his truck.

The homeowner then arrived home and gave chase. In the pursuit, the homeowner's truck was rammed... but he managed to hold Black for authorities. Elvis Black's bond was set at $40,000 dollars.

No one was injured.
