BIBB COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Bibb County sheriff's deputies say a suspect is in custody after being on the run for nearly three hours.

Twenty-two-year-old Troy Malloy Brown of Centreville is charged with DUI, attempting to allude, possession of marijuana and leaving the scene of an accident. 

At 6:53 p.m. Tuesday, a Centreville police officer pulled Brown over on a traffic stop. When the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle, police say Brown took off.

A short time later Brown crashed his car into a creek on Abercrombie Road, just off of Alabama Highway 219.  The suspect then ran away. 

Brown was located about 9:45 p.m. not far from the crash site.  He was arrested and taken to the Bibb County Jail. 

Deputies assisted Centreville police in the search.  An Alabama Department of Corrections dog tracking team was also used to locate Brown.
