A man who has an attempted murder warrant out for his arrest in Tennessee was captured in Akron overnight.

According to Akron police, Bobby Claybrook, 34, was arrested after he tried to flee from a traffic stop around 1 a.m. Thursday.

A police sergeant pulled over the car Claybrook was riding in near East Exchange and Brown streets for driving without taillights. The driver, Dontoreus Jermaine Douglas, 28, gave police a fake name, birth date and social security number. 

When the sergeant tried to arrest Douglas, he took off in the car. 

Police pursued the vehicle but supervisors called off the chase at South Arlington Street and South Cole Avenue when speeds reached 80 mph.

A short time later, the three people in the car jumped out and took off on foot. Douglas was captured after a three-block foot chase. Claybrook, who was wanted by the U.S. Marshals for attempted murder in Dyersburg, Tenn. and on another parole violation, was caught in a garage. 

According to WPSD in Paducah, Ky. Claybrook's attempted murder charge stems from a double shooting in October of last year.
