Fugitive arrested at restaurant where sheriff was eating

BATESVILLE, Ark. (AP) – Authorities say a fugitive wanted in connection with a police chase that left a Sharp County deputy injured was arrested after walking into a restaurant near Batesville where the sheriff and other deputies were eating.

Sheriff Mark Counts told reporters that he and deputies were at E&B Bigger Burger on Tuesday when 30-year-old Jonathan Miller walked into the restaurant. Counts said Miller ducked and tried to leave when he saw the law officers, but was arrested.

Miller was wanted in connection with a Monday night chase in which he allegedly led a deputy on before the deputy crashed his patrol car. The deputy was treated and released at a hospital.

Court records do not list an attorney for Miller.
