Suspect in auto theft case runs from Hall Co. investigator

By Staff
MADISON CO. - Hall County authorities confirmed Tuesday that a 34-year-old Jackson County man fled from one of their investigators last week during a probe of an auto theft case in Madison County.

Authorities said Joseph D. Jackson was being questioned at a location on Neese-Commerce Road in rural Madison County last Thursday when he managed to wrestle free from the investigator as he was being led to a patrol car.

Jackson, who was handcuffed behind his back at the time, ran through a pasture and into a wooded area, according to authorities.

Jackson is a white male with blonde hair, 5 feet-10 inches tall, weighing about 180 lbs., according to investigators.

Hall County Sheriff's Office Deputy Chad Mann confirmed the incident, saying that Jackson was being arrested on a variety of misdemeanor charges. He now has a warrant for a felony theft by taking charge. He is not considered dangerous.
