SHARP COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 man climbed out of the window of his home to avoid arrest. 

The Sharp County Sheriff's Department and the Arkansas State Police arrived at a residence on Main Street in Strawberry to serve two arrest warrants, Wednesday. According to the Sheriff Mark Counts, Derrick Clifton climbed out of the rear window when officers approached the home. He was caught and taken into custody.

An ACIC check showed that Cindy Clifton, Derrick's wife, was wanted in Independence County for a hot check and was arrested and will be picked up by Independence County deputies.

According to Counts, Derrick Clifton was wanted after he led Cave City police on a pursuit in a car with fake tags, July 31. He abounded the car at the Cave City Middle School parking lot and a passenger identified Derrick as the driver. Officers were unable to find him at that time.

Derrick has been charged with feeling on foot, fleeing by vehicle, reckless driving, improper use of registration, driving under a suspended license, improper use of registration, no proof of insurance and illegal window tint.

He is being held at the Sharp County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
