He was taken to the hospital to be checked out, Sheriff Wes Tripp said this morning.
Tripp said there was concern Darrieck Brinson could have been seriously injured because there is a deep ravine where he went into the woods behind the sheriff’s office. The extent of injuries, if any, were not immediately known.
Brinson had initially been taken into custody early Monday morning after he fled on foot from a checking station in Weldon. He was apprehended for that offense and transported to the sheriff’s office for booking when he bolted from the patrol vehicle and headed to woods behind the facility.
He surrendered to the sheriff’s office around 11:30 p.m. Monday.
Brinson was charged with delay and obstruct and larceny of handcuffs. He was served outstanding warrants for two counts of misdemeanor larceny. He has a July 23 court date for driving while license revoked.
Tripp said he called off further search efforts scheduled for today after Brinson surrendered.
