SSPD’s Officer Adrian Pruitt arrested Todrick Zyquince Cork, 21, of Sulphur Springs after a casual contact led the young man to flee on foot and officer Pruitt to give chase, according to reports.

At approximately 9:53 a.m. on Saturday, Pruitt made contact with Cork at the EZ Mart at 1441 Shannon Road east, as Pruitt knew Cork had outstanding warrants, according to reports.

Cork allegedly “identified himself as another person” and Pruitt “knew he [Cork] was not telling the truth.” At that point, reports read, Pruitt attempted to place Cork in handcuffs, but Cork pulled away and fled the scene on foot.

Cork fled approximately 0.3 miles to Helm Lane at Cadi Lane before Pruitt caught up with him and was able to secure him, according to reports.

Cork was booked into jail on charges of evading arrest or detention with previous convictions, failure to identify a fugitive, evading arrest or detention with a vehicle out of Lamar County, possession of marijuana less than 2 ounces out of Lamar County, previous charge of evading arrest or detention and unlawful carrying of a weapon. Cork remains in prison on $109,000 worth of bonds, according to records.
