Brief foot chase leads to arrest




A man under arrest was able to wriggle one hand out of handcuffs and then ran from the courthouse, leading officers on a chase through downtown Franklin and a youth center.

Jonathan Riley Hanshew, 25, Trafalgar, was caught at Girls Inc., 200 E. Madison St., on Wednesday after running through the building while trying to escape from police, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report. No children were at the center at the time.

Hanshew was arrested at the courthouse on a warrant because his bond had been revoked and taken to the lockup in the basement. Hanshew was able to get one hand out of his handcuffs and ran out of the building, telling officers “good luck catching me” on his way out, according to the report.
