A Cave Spring man was caught Friday morning after a short chase and is now facing additional felony charges after police say he tried to draw a .22 caliber pistol on officers.

According to Floyd County police:

Warrants for failure to appear and an escape warrant had been taken out for Glenn Rex Bullard, 38, of 7354 Black’s Bluff Road earlier.

Police were looking for Bullard near Brushy Branch at 10 a.m. Friday and had gone to a home he was knows to frequent. A woman, identified as Heather McLemore, answered the door and said she hadn’t seen him in months, Beck said.

At that point Bullard fled out of the back door.

Two off-duty Floyd County police officers were called in to assist in the chase and Ofc. Tim Minter came across Bullard as he was running in the area.

Bullard was attempting to pull the pistol and Minter tazed him.

Bullard was taken to the jail and now faces additional felony charges of obstruction, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and aggravated assault on a police officer.

McLemore was also arrested and charged with misdemeanor obstruction and felony hindering the apprehension of a fugitive charges. Her information was not readily available at the jail.
