A Lubbock man who tried to avoid a traffic stop Friday because he had a suspended license and an open container of beer ended up jailed on a felony charge of evading arrest with a vehicle.
    Kerry Fuson, 47, was also arrested on a second misdemeanor charge of evading arrest after deputies found him crouching beside a pickup in the Heartland Mall parking lot, a report by sheriff’s investigator Carlyle Gover states.
    Fuson remained jailed Monday in lieu of bonds totaling $7,000.
    According to Gover’s report:
    Gover and investigator Robert Ramirez were working as a two-man unit when they tried to stop Fuson’s 2006 Ford Crown Victoria for traffic violations.
    Fuson did not yield to the patrol vehicle’s emergency lights and turned into the mall parking lot, where he parked among other parked vehicles.
    Gover parked behind Fuson’s car and noticed he was no longer in the car. The deputies got out and Ramirez saw Fuson crouched beside a pickup parked next to the Ford. Fuson stood up and raised his hands in a surrender manner.
