A Wildwood man wanted on a drug-related warrant was apprehended by Sumter County sheriff’s deputies after a foot chase.
Deputies responded at about 8 p.m. Wednesday to 9940 County Road 121 looking for 24-year-old Tate Austin Williams, who took off running when he realized that law enforcement has arrived on the scene. He ignored commands to stop.
Deputies found Williams hiding in a small fenced-in area with trash cans in the backyard.
He was arrested on an additional charge of resisting arrest. He was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $4,000 bond.
