A man is in the Shelby County Jail after he tried to run from the police Monday night.

Police say they responded to an armed party call at Southland Mall. When they arrived, the suspect drove away.

Officers tried to stop the car, but the suspect, identified as Jamar Ross, continued to try to escape.

After about four minutes of following the car, Ross jumped out of the car near the intersection of Lakeview Road and Craft Road. Police caught him soon after.

Ross was booked into the Shelby County Jail around 1 a.m. Tuesday.

He faces multiple charges including reckless driving, evading arrest, and intentionally evading arrest in an automobile.

Ross is due in court Wednesday morning.
